How to Set up Reindeer Farm Sensory Bin
Create Your Reindeers
To make the reindeer antlers use brown pipe cleaners. Twist a full size pipe cleaner around the head of the animal.
Cut one pipe cleaner into four pieces and twist them around the first pipe cleaner. I used horses, cows and sheep for my reindeers.
Making Fake Snow
To make fake snow I used the fabulous recipe from Little Bins for Little Hands. It’s super simple and all your need is corn starch and baking soda mixed with water. Check out her blog for details on how to make it.
Setting up Your Reindeer Farm Sensory Bin
Put your fake snow in the sensory bin or sensory table and add your farm reindeer animals.
Set out your toy barn either inside the sensory bin with the fake snow or on your sensory table. Add your other farm toys such as toy tractors and farmers.
