Disney’s Frozen movie has become a fast favorite of many, including my very own 6 year-old. After watching her have a blast with full-body shaving cream exploration last week, the wheels started turning in my head…and this Frozen-Inspired Sensory Play idea was born!
Frozen Sensory Play
Keeping with the Frozen theme, I wanted that shaving cream good and cold! So I emptied our ice cube tray into the water table.
(Can you tell we played with dirt in it earlier this week?)
Then I covered those ice cubes with a can of shaving cream for plenty of snow. (For younger children, try our taste-safe cloud dough, perfect as pretend snow.)
And, because I was really trying to make a sensory experience my little girl would LOVE, I added plenty of glitter!
Anna and Elsa completed the scene, and then it was time to call out my own little princess.
“Mommy, the ice cubes and shaving cream are cold like real snow!”
As the ice cubes melted the whole thing became a cold, squishy world to play in, with a bit more glitter added from time to time!
At some point she recreated the scene with Anna climbing up the mountain to find her sister…
I think this one has become her favorite sensory tub of all time!
And since it was outside, all we had to do was hose the shaving cream and glitter off when she was finished playing, making it one of my favorites, too!
