Wintery Sensory Play

  

With the small amount of snow we have had this winter and the fact the number four’s theme at nursery for the next couple of weeks is ‘Frozen’ I decided to sort a wintery themed sensory play activity for this afternoon.

I took a jug of cold water and mixed with a few drops of blue food colouring, filled an ice cube tray and waited until they were frozen.

With a can of cheap shaving foam stashed away that we normally keep for bath paints I created a mound of snow and scattered the ice cubes over the top.

  

    
  
The longest part of prepping this activity is waiting for the ice cubes to harden.  It really is so simple and number four spent ages playing around and exploring the different textures.

Who needs snow!
