- Run about a half-inch of water into the base of a plastic food container and freeze it.
- Gather a tray, some favorite figurines and shaving cream.
- Squeeze the shaving cream liberally all over the tray to make "snow", leaving but one small space clear.
- Once the water has frozen in the plastic food tub, pop it out and put in that space.
Gotta love Luke's current obsession with hockey for inspiring this take on our sensory and shaving cream fun. Textures. Temperatures. Great tactile input! A delectable bite for a healthy sensory diet and another good tie in for our book of the week - The Snowy Day. (Sensorimotor/movement lesson ideas for that here and storyhour ideas here.)
