Who’s ready for some Frozen preschool sensory activities? I’m sure you’re your kids must be as obsessed with Elsa and Anna as my daughter is or you wouldn’t be here right now.
Ok I will be honest, I actually went a little sensory crazy for this week and ended up with several Frozen preschool sensory activities. I created a few bins for this lesson plan and I may actually give Jael a few more because she loved them that much.

PLAYING WITHT THE FROZEN PRESCHOOL SENSORY ACTIVITIES-WINTER BIN
Once I gave J the go ahead, she ran happily to her bin. She practiced her pouring and scooping skills by using her measuring cup and spoon. She also practiced counting- she counted each scoop of barley she poured into her cup.
I even overheard her talking to her little brother and telling him this is her sensory bin and that he can play with it. I even got invited to play with her. There is something about hearing my daughter say the words, “Mommy play with me please?” that melts my heart.
