Snow Sensory Tub


We've been hoping and wishing for snow, but it looks like it's not going to happen. So, we made our own snow! Fake snow is better than no snow! I bought a snow cone maker (from WM) at then end of the summer (super cheap!), and O was THRILLED to make snow on Tuesday. At first she was only interested in eating the snow, but once she had her fill she was ready to play! She scooped and poured a little, but she especially enjoyed playing with her miniature plastic animals in the snow. She pretended they were hunting in the snow for food. It was fun to watch her play and listen to the story she told as she played :)

  4. Makes me think I should bring some of our outside snow inside! I'll confess, when it's cold outside, I don't want to go to the trouble to put on a ton of snow gear and go outside! Particularly when it's a -25C day - brrr!
