Don't you love how they are in short sleeves? Love San Diego!
We also brought "snow" indoors through sensory play. Recently, I was preparing for a clown job (yes, if you didn't know, I'm a professional clown) and found some Slush Powder in my magic stash. Slush Powder is basically the stuff they put inside diapers to absorb liquid. You can also purchase it as Insta-Snow If you've never tried it out I highly recommend it. It's very simple to use.
As it gels up, you can stir it a bit to ensure equal distribution.
a great big snow ball!
When I taught preschool, I made a huge sensory tub full of this stuff. What's nice is if you cover it, it will keep for quite a while. I believe I had my tub for about 2 weeks. I would add water to freshen it up but other then that, it didn't smell or get too dirty from dirty hands. I think I filled the tub with about 1/4 cup or less of this fun stuff. Although I added toys to the slush, most of the kids enjoyed squishing it through their hands and measuring it with cups. Even though this is a product you have to purchase, I believe it's worth the cost, as you need so little of it to make a good amount of snow.
Have you tried powdered "snow" in your home or preschool? What did your kids think of the experience?
