Winter Sensory Tub

My two year old daughter really enjoyed the last Sensory Tub we made for the Fall.

So this time I decided to make one with a Winter theme – since we will be getting to spend some of the holidays this year in a cold climate! Our family will be visiting family up North- and there is a pretty good chance that my daughter will see some snow!

So in planning a “Winter” Sensory Tub I had two objectives in mind:

1) That the Sensory tub would provide an avenue for my daughter to explore the concept of “snow” and colder climates.

2) That the Sensory Tub would be “Edible” – our toddler is going through a picky eating stage and I wanted her to have a chance to play with food! And to maybe be tempted to try new things because it was part of play.

(Our only rule- is that everything in the tub has to stay on the blanket!)

Our Bin was made up of:

  • Marshmallows (bodies of snowmen- as snow in tub)
  • Dried Cranberries (Mouth of snowmen and sprinkled)
  • Piece of Slim Jims (arms of snowmen)
  • Food coloring was used to paint on the marshmallows
