Sensory Fun in the Snow!

  • Shoveling snow gives your child heavy muscle work activity that can be very calming and organizing.
  • Go sledding for a burst of movement and muscle activity.
  • Make angels in the snow, roll snowballs, and build snow forts to improve motor planning.
  • Throw snowballs at targets to increase visual motor skills.
  • Snow shoeing is another way to get some heavy muscle work.
  • Hide toys in snow for your child to find to improve tactile and visual discrimination.
  • Bring a cookie sheet of snow inside to practice drawing designs and letters.

Stay warm and have fun!
