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.
