Hands-On Learning

Talk about hands-on, sensory bags are great way to foster learning. They are easy to create and focus on multiple skills. This snowman letter recognition sensory bag is wonderful for any winter themed preschooler or toddler unit.

Make quiet time their favourite time!

Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.

My Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!

How to Set Up Snowman Hunt Letter Sensory Bag

Grab your gallon sized ziplock bag. You can remove the label using an alcohol wipe. Draw 8-10 mini snowmen using black and orange sharpies. Write the letters you want your little one to practice inside the snowmen.

Fill the bag with a couple of squirts of shaving cream. Add about a cup of water. Seal the bag and remove all the air.

Mix the shaving cream and water together in the bag. Ensure all the air is removed and use packing tape to secure the top of the bag.

Tape the sensory bag to a table or floor using painter’s tape so that it is easier for your preschooler to complete the task.

Grab a sheet of paper and write out the letters that your little one has to find. Once they find a snowman with that letter they then need to check it off the list.

How to Play with Snowman Letter Sensory Bag

First, I had my preschoolers identify the letters and the sounds it made on the sheet and then had them tried to find the letters in the sensory bag. Once they found a letter they then used a marker to check it off the list.

Age Suitability

This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7.5 year old.
