We have been busy putting the house back together after the hectic days leading up to Christmas, but as I have time, I have started gathering materials and resources for our winter preschool unit. When I was sorting the items in our Christmas Sensory Bin for storage, I decided that since the boys enjoyed it so much I needed to make a winter sensory bin to go along with our winter unit. So here's what I came up with...
Here's what I put in our Winter Sensory Bin...
Rice colored with blue food coloring
Take 2-3 cups of rice and put them in a ziploc bag.
Add a couple of teaspoons of rubbing alcohol
and several drops of blue food coloring.
Close bag and shake until rice is evenly covered.
Pour onto wax paper and allow to dry several hours.
cotton balls and white pom poms
clear plastic beads
Winter Sight Words & Letters
snowman, snow, ice, water
S, I, W
Flat white marbles???
not really sure what this represents but it is white and cold to the touch
Dump it all into a box and you have hours of preschool fun and exploration just waiting to happen! The only thing I would change is having ALOT more rice to dig through..
Differnt measuring spoons and scoops for pouring into an icecube tray ;)
Other Cute Sensory Tubs I have come across...
We got a tiny bit of snow after Christmas which is rare for where we live.
So of course I had to take Tinkerbell outside for 30 seconds so she could touch snow for the first time!
She is soooo adorable :)
