Very, very low prep activity that you and your toddlers will love.
A little snow, a bucket and your imagination is all you need for this activity. Oh and a towel since I assume you don't want your floors getting wet. I did this with a 1.5 and 3 year old for just about an hour and I guarentee we will do this again before the snow melts.
Whether it's too cold outside, or one family member wants to go out and others don't; this is the perfect solution.
It's getting close to Valentine's Day so we had red chickpeas and heart cookie cutters near by and easy to add to our snow bin. But the best part about this is that you can add whatever you want; blocks or different toys, food colouring, literally anything.
We made heart shaped "cakes" which was a great activity for practicing transfer skills; from the snow bin into cups then dumped or scooped with a spoon and fork.
Our mittens were near by for when our fingers got cold.
I highly recommend bringing out a plate to work on your creations. The snow starts melting from being inside and from the heat of our hands, and the plate helps contain the water!
The chickpeas made the perfect buttons, and "treats" to decorate our snow-cake.
If you try indoor snow-play, I'd love to see or hear how it turned out!
