As the winter sets in, it's the perfect time for your kiddos to join in a sensory experience that's not only entertaining but also delicious! In this blog post, I'll explore an arctic winter-themed sensory activity for toddlers using a combination of  Jello, coconut, and animals.

Materials Needed:

  1. Blue Jello mix

  2. Coconut flakes

  3. Assorted polar bear, penguin, and arctic animal figurines

  4. Container for the activity

Instructions:

Prepare the Jello:

Begin by preparing the blue jello according to the instructions on the package. Allow it to set in container. The blue color will serve as the base for our wonderland.

Create Coconut Snow/Ice Caps:

Once the Jello has set and is firm to the touch, it's time to add a touch of snow. Sprinkle coconut flakes on top of the Jello, creating a snowy landscape. The coconut adds a texture and the look of snow. Add the flakes in piles to simulate ice caps.

Introduce Arctic Animals:

Place assorted polar bear, penguin, and other arctic animal figurines on the coconut-covered Jello. Encourage your toddler to explore the arctic scene by moving the animals around, creating stories, and using their imagination.

Sensory Exploration:

The combination of the Jello, coconut, and the adorable animal figurines provides a multi-sensory experience. Encourage them to feel the different textures!

Taste the Fun:

One of the best parts of this sensory activity is that it's entirely edible! Allow your toddler to enjoy the sweet taste of the Jello and coconut as they explore the winter.

Extend the Play:

If they're older consider incorporating additional items such as small winter trees, rocks, or even a mini igloo!

Edible sensory activities like this winter wonderland, provide a fantastic way for toddlers to explore the magic of the season. This engaging and delicious experience not only stimulates their senses but also encourages imaginative play. So, gather your polar bears, penguins, and arctic animals, and go on a cold adventure with your little one!
