Ice skating small world play is a great sensory activity to make for toddlers and preschoolers during wintertime.
Small world play keeps children busy for a longer time. They will have fun and at the same time use their imaginations and language. It’s a very educational and developmental activity for children.
I like to plan the small world play activity based on the children’s interests and also the season. Since it’s Wintertime and in “Canada” we tend to have long chilly Winters with a lot of snow… And when we say snow it’s automatically outdoor sports… “Ice Skating and Snow Boarding”, I decided to make this fun sensory activity for my 3-year-old. It’s so easy to make and he loved it!
