Mixing Up Some Sensory Snow!
Materials (Just 2 Ingredients)
- ½ cup hair conditioner (either use what you already have or just buy the less expensive stuff)
- 1 cup baking soda
- your hands!
Step 1 This sensory snow is awesome because it only requires 2 ingredients and comes together quickly! Start by measuring out your baking soda and hair conditioner.
Step 2 Mix hair conditioner and baking soda in the bowl. You can use a spoon or spatula, but quite honestly, it’s a lot of fun to just mix with your hands!
Step 3 This is a chance for your preschooler to do some sensory exploration. They can try to create different things using their sensory snow. It packs together well, so you can create small snowmen!
Sensory Questions for Your Preschooler
Here are a few questions you can ask your preschooler as they are exploring the sensory snow.
- What does it smell like?

- Describe what it feels like when you just hold it in your hands.
