Creative Outdoor Sensory Play!
I started putting together this post because the weather in Colorado was beautiful yesterday. It felt like summer was here to stay and play. Then… at about 8pm last night I found out that we are having a blizzard. Starting tomorrow. Oh my goodness. I am not sure who ticked off Elsa, but we are in the process of making our “Blizzard Grocery List” for the weekend. So, to those of you in places where it feels like summer and are blizzard free– this is for you. I will live vicariously through you.
When I was little my 3 favorite things were arts-n-crafts, sensory play and imaginary play. My little head may have exploded from excited if I were to do all of the activities in this post. Ha! Here are some super fun things to do that combine sensory play and creativity for your littles to do outdoors. Have fun!
