DIY; Easy Recipe for Sensory Snow!  Blue glitter, peppermint extract, baking soda, and water. I also made a batch with Eucalyptus oil. Both scents work great. This can also be beneficial for kids with head colds. The scents help clear the nose while playing. Profided by FSPDT

This is a sensory wall I created in my infant/young toddler classroom. I wrapped pieces of cardboard in a variety of textures. The ones I used were felt, tin foil, contact paper, bubble wrap, burlap, and the plastic they wrap couches in. I simply taped the material to the cardboard with masking tape and then taped them to the wall. It is a great way for the infants to experience textures.
