Indoor Snow Play for Kids:

Fill a bin or container with snow
Got snow but want to be warm inside?  No problem!  Just fill a sensory bin or container 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 so that they can paint the snow.  Mix 5-10 drops of food coloring with water in spray bottles, and you will have a vibrant snow paint!

  • Explore Science and make a Snow Volcano in your bin of snow.  We did this outside, but the activity could easily be set up inside in a large container or sensory bin.
