Winter Themed Sensory Activities for Creative Play

Sensory activities are really important for a child’s development.  It’s essential that they are able to experience their world with multiple senses and in a safe environment.  These would be perfect for your child to explore and have some creative fun in the process!

The cool thing about these activities is that they’re for the preschool or lower elementary crowd, but could honestly be enjoyed by all ages.  I know my big kids would still love to do ice painting, for example!  Get creative and have tons of fun celebrating the winter season.
