16 Winter Themed Sensory Play Ideas

Winter is upon us! Let's celebrate! 

Do you live where it snows? We don't but we do make sure we take our babes to see snow every year.  Without having real snow in our winter I have been finding ways to incorporate the ideas, feelings, and fun of snow into our play.
