Real Snow Activities for Toddlers
Are you luck enough to have some snow (or mabye even too much). These great real snow activities for toddlers will keep them entertained outdoors and indoors and are pretty simple to set up too.
For those of you without snow, you can always play around with insta fake snow.
Toddler Activities Using Real Snow
I live in a hot climate where we never get snow so these snow activity ideas are all shared from our Facebook Group members living in much colder locations!
Malin shared this great idea!
- Pour a color on a matching peg
- Paint the snow
- Drip color on the snow
- Make snowballs to throw in the shower
- Slush scooping
- Bath in the big bin
I love she used one of my favorite fine motor/sensory toys from too - you can get the dropper HERE on Amazon.
Snow Painting with Squirty Bottles
Jackie shared this fun idea using squirty bottles (you can get them HERE). You can follow Jackie via @mamaandc on Instagram for more ideas.
Kim took this activity to the next level and painted their snowman!
Christina also painted their snowman

I really love the brushes that Kelsey has used (you can get them here) and she's kept it simple with snow in a container.

Snow in the Toy Kitchen
I love pretend play but would never have thought to add snow to the toy kitchen like Taylor did - great idea!
