12 Jan Winter Sensory Tray
Enjoy a wintery twist on a classic sensory bin!
Optional: a stick, pencil, or other writing tool

Early Literacy Tip
This activity stimulates the child’s imagination and encourages their growth with a hands-on experience. It can also help develop pre-writing skills, and allows elementary age children a chance to practice writing in a fun and nurturing environment.
