Snow Bakery Sensory Play Ideas: bring the snow inside, add some food colouring, and toy dishes and make a snow bakery kids will love.
When It’s Too Cold For Outdoor Play
It’s actually been too cold lately to go outside and play. That’s meant lots of indoor recesses at school. What do you do when it’s too cold to go out and play in the snow…bring the snow inside.
So the other day I thought it might be fun to bring a little snow inside to play with.
Snow Bakery Sensory Play Ideas
We decided to make our own little snow bakery on the kitchen table as a great sensory play experience.
I set up 2 trays with towels underneath them for any drips, and then found lots of little toys and baking pans. I brought the snow inside in a large bucket.
When you’re finding toys and baking dishes, think about shapes. Things like baking moulds, hearts, and cupcake pans worked great. A couple different size ice cream scoops were a big hit too. And don’t forget your gloves.

Coloured Water Spray
- food colouring
- spray bottles
I set it up for my girls for a little after school fun. Their favourite part was some coloured water. I bought three plain squirt bottles at the dollar store, and filled them with water and added some a bit of food colouring to them.
So easy, inexpensive, and fun -that pretty much meets all my criteria.
We spent ages moulding, squirting and making and baking.
