Sensory snow time! Thankfully, I thought to do this before all the snow melted the next day. Unfortunately, when I went outside to grab some with a spoon, it was pretty icy from melting. Next time, I’ll get some freshly fallen snow.
I don’t think John seemed to care that the snow wasn’t perfect. He loved playing with snow in the middle of the kitchen floor. I set him up with some bowls, funnels, empty spice jars, measuring spoons, and pots and pans. He played for a good 30 minutes. But then he started throwing, so it had to end. I think that there were too many tools to work with and next time I’ll just put two tools out. Maybe that will focus him a bit more.
Starting out the exploration– this is coooold!
