Making Snow

Making Snow

Sensory play encourages children to manipulate and mold materials, building up their fine motor skills and coordination. Self-esteem: sensory play offers kids the opportunity for self-expression because there is no right answer and children feel safe to change or experiment with what they are doing.

Making Fluffy Snow using soap flakes is a fun and messy sensory play activity.

It is a great way to incorporate a bit of a Christmas theme during the summer

Children will enjoy finding fun ways to explore the fluffy snow mixture; squishing, feeling and playing with it.

You will need:

  • 1 cup of Soap Flakes
  • 3 cups warm water,
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Large container or tray
  • Electric beater.

Beat the water and soap flakes the mixture multiples,

The children love to watch the change of the clear watery liquid mixture to a thick white blob.

We sprinkled the fluffy snow around the garden to create a winter wonderland.  It is so easy to clean up with a hose as it just dissolves and washes away.

Have fun with this activity and we recommend adult supervision at all times.
