Real Snow Sensory Bin

Do you have snow?  Children love playing in the snow, but if it is too cold for your toddler or preschooler to stay outside for long then bring the snow indoors! It is so easy to set up a real snow sensory bin and the kids love it.

Harry was only 18 months old when he first saw snow and as much as he loved it, he didn't want to be outside for long.

So we brought the snow indoors so he could continue the fun! 

I filled his sand table with snow and brought it indoors.  Then I added his sand toys and some dinosaurs and animals.  He was soooo excited when he saw it.

There are so many ways you can set this snow activity up. Any tray can be used to set up a real snow sensory bin, or even a bowl of snow would be fun. 

As well as adding sand toys like buckets and spades you can add your little ones favourite toys, whether that be paw patrol or faires! 

Adding pieces of nature like twigs and leaves is a nice added touch too. You might also enjoy painting snow or making a snow volcano
