Okay, I have said before, I apparently like glitter this year. It’s been fun and festive with all the things we have been doing around the house. Hasn’t been quite as messy as I thought it would be. Today, I changed out the sensory table. I had in it the Insta-Snow. Let me tell ya, it was a lot of fun, but didn’t live up to my expectations. But, the kids had fun with it and I would probably buy it again. It just didn’t keep the volume that I thought it would. My son had fun driving his monster trucks through it. We will probably buy it again, but I won’t have such high hopes!
Today, we made some glistening snow! I had bought 4 containers of salt. I think I spent a whole $1.60 total. I ended up only using three containers. The kids poured that into the table. Then I added many different colors of glitter to give it sparkle and some color!
You can’t really see the sparkle but it’s in there!
I have a bin of containers and lids and other random things that I use for our sensory table activities. This time, I pulled out all the clear containers, two small scoops, sifter, and two funnels. I did this so the kids could watch the “snow” glisten and see what they were doing! It’s a great activity and the kids are having fun with it.
The salt does leave a weird texture feeling on your hands, but nothing that a little soap and water can’t take care of. I look at it as a very cheap, fun, and different activity to entertain the kiddos! Just have a broom handy!
