Sensory Snow Safe to Taste

Safe to Taste Snow Sensory (5)

We’ve had lots of fun making pretend snow this winter, and this easy sensory bin was the simplest way yet! When Veronika requested snow this morning, I thought quickly and simply poured in an unused box of instant mashed potato flakes. “Snow!” I told Veronika.

To mix things up, my original plan was to add toy trains to the bin. But she started using big brother’s army trucks instead.

“It’s so snowy blowy!” she said as she drove the trucks around, and loved watching the tracks that the vehicles left behind.

Travis added aliens, so perhaps this was a snowy planet from another galaxy!

Then she wanted to add her ponies, and thought it was quite fun that the horses were “snowy blowy” too.

As long as you don’t get the mixture wet, the potato flakes will brush off quite easily at the end, making this an easy bin for clean-up, too.

This “snow” is perfect for a toddler how might want to take a taste. But if you have older kids who prefer colder snow that can really clump together like snowballs, there are lots of other options to try!
