This month I made the messiest sensory bin yet, but it is super fun! I put a tablecloth down under the bin, but the kids got it all over themselves and of course tracked it around. So, if you do this, consider yourself forewarned.
I got the idea here and it is a fabulous idea. It is a pretend bin of snow based on cloud dough, which we played with this summer, except I added a bit of glitter (8 cups flour to 1 cup oil). The cloud dough will hold together to make “snow” balls.
I also added a few Christmas village houses, a snowman, a couple of trees, and some little people to the bin. All of them I bought at Dollar Tree. They are ceramic, but the bin is on the ground, so I don’t think I have to worry too much about them breaking. They are covered in fake snow now, but it should just rinse right off to put away in the Christmas box for next year.
