My girls LOVE playing in the snow. They could play and play and play, but sometimes this mama is COLD! Bringing the snow indoors is one way to let kids play and enjoy the snow while everyone is cozy and warm.
All you have to do is fill a sensory bin with the snow from outside. Once inside there are so many ways kids can play and explore with the snow.
Add scoopers and other kitchen gadgets for a bit of simple exploration
Give kids spray bottles of colored water or liquid watercolors so they can paint the snow
Paint brushes and colored water make for another fun way to PLAY
Sand toys are great for use in the snow. Add a few to the bin and kids will have lots of fun digging, scooping, and building snow castles
This is always a big hit with my girls
They also love playing with cars and trucks in the snow
