Baby Bins: Winter

Happy New Year everyone! We enjoyed our little break for the holidays but are ready to get right back into our school routine. It has been ridiculously cold and we have been hunkering down over here and not leaving the house, so I am glad I had these fun winter themed baby bins all ready for Miss Aubrey to explore.

Here are the details for each of our Winter activities:
 Winter Read Aloud:
Lois Ehlert is one of my FAVORITE authors of all time (Fun fact: she's actually from my hometown!) and Snowballs is one of her books that is a must in every child's library.  The collage style of her illustrations make the snowmen in this story so lovable and interesting to look at so the board book version made a great book for this week's theme.
 Snow Themed Sensory Bin:

  Ice Paint/Tape Resist Snowflakes:
For this art activity I dyed water with liquid watercolors and froze them into blue & purple ice cubes with popsicle sticks in them. Then I taped snowflakes on cardstock with washi tape. Aubrey used the colored ice to paint over the snowflake shapes. After a bit of painting, I helped to remove the tape and reveal . *Be careful not to let the paper get too soaked or the tape will be hard to pull off without ripping the paper.
 Glowing Winter Water Beads:
Aubrey loved this glowing winter water bead sensory bin. Putting our sensory bin on top of our light pad added just enough magic to pique her curiosity.

In this bin: blue and clear water beadsfoam snowflakes, scoops and cups

**Remember water beads are NOT taste safe, so if your littles are likely to take a bite, try using tapioca pearls instead.
 Stained Glass Mittens:
I love a good stained glass craft so when I found this tutorial from Maria at Kinder Craze I knew it would be perfect for this week! Go grab the free templates and directions here.
Icy Sensory Bin:
