The weather post from the blog hop are so cool! Did you check any of them out? You should!
We live where summer is sunny, fall is sunny (with a bit of wind), winter is sunny (with a bit of rain), and spring is…. you got it SUNNY! We know a lot about sun, but rarely get a chance to talk about things like snow. Hubs and I came up with a fun pretend snow sensory tray. M and M loved it… I think you will too!
what you need: cookie tray ~ ice ~ trucks ~ dolls ~ igloo (I’ll show you how)
I crushed up ice cubes in the blender, making sure to return the crushed ice back to the freezer while I worked. Since it’s pretty warm here, I froze the cookie sheet before adding the pretend snow. (That was Hubs idea… he’s so smart.)
Hubs made the igloo by adding a little bit of water to a bowl and placing a slightly smaller bowl inside. The rubber band held the bowls in place and freezer did the rest! (We froze it for 24 hours and used a tiny bit of warm water to release it from the bowl.)
M and M grabbed some of their favorite little things and got busy playing.
Big M finally got to use his snow plow.
Little M and I made a snowman. (I would not let them have a snowball fight…mean mom!)
There was even a fire pit for the crew.
The snow melted pretty fast… good thing Big M was there to keep it in one spot!
