Sensory play in the sink allowed us to bring the snow inside! We explored with fine motor color mixing.
First, I went outside to gather some snow off of our deck. Yes, without shoes, because I'm too lazy to go downstairs to get them and apparently being home for two days makes you lose your best judgement.
Next we let D check out snow for the first time.
Here E is explaining, "Snow is made out of water, D!" He listens intently.

and red! Festive sensory play!
By the end, E had created colored slush! We both loved this activity! Clean up was just pulling the plug and rinsing the bottles!
I dissolved color bath tablets in squeeze bottles to make colored cold water (in Christmas colors!) and plugged up the sink.
The squeeze bottles are great for fine motor practice muscles and hand eye coordination!
