Method
  • Talk about an easy play time.  All you have to do to make snow sand is place a bag of Epsom salt in the freezer overnight.  The next day you will have the most glorious, icy cold & sparkly sand.   Pour the sand into a sensory bin or container, add glitter and props, and play can begin!

The Epsom salts make a perfect Frozen sand.  The sand feels like grains of ice between little fingers.  Each grain shimmers and sparkles with intensity, and yet it feels and acts just like traditional sand from the beach

The girls played and played.  They pretended to build Olaf, buried their princesses and then rescued them, and built icy sand castles that came flowing from the sand buckets like a million diamonds when turned over. 

Once play time was over I stored the Frozen sand in a zip-seal bag and placed it in the freezer for future play.  I have pulled this sand out several times since then, and the girls just love it.  And I love how easy this activity was to put together!

A Few tips:  You can get Epsom salt at the dollar store or in bulk at Walmart very inexpensively.  Frozen figurines can be found online here.  Some of our salt clumped together during the freezing process (it looked like snowballs) but was easily broken apart as the girls played.
