Get Messy with LEGOs: Arctic Adventures

This blog is part of a five day 'Get Messy with LEGOs Challenge'. See the overview blog here.

 

Baking soda snow is so easy to make and such a fun sensory material for kids to explore. It makes the perfect base for your kids to build an arctic adventure on!

Instructions:

To make the fake snow simply tip both boxes of baking soda into a large bowl. Gradually add the water, mixing each time. Stop adding the water once you get a snow-like consistency that you are happy with. Adding more water will make it into a snow dough which is also pretty cool. We put our fake snow in the fridge for an hour to add an extra chill factor!

 

Put the snow into a large container or tray. Display a fun selection of building bricks along side it and let your kids' creativity take over!

These two kids decided to build their own winter wonderland! It might not look like much, but to them it was full of igloos, snowmobiles, and ice diggers!

The fake snow is such a unique sensory play experience and really freshens up brick building! It also washes straight off the LEGOs.
