A few years a go I made a cloud dough sensory tray. Well, it is time to get it out again, this time it’s a winter animal sensory tray.

Make sure you follow my sensory board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make your own winter animal sensory tray you will need:

  • Tray
  • Cloud dough*
  • Small world animals
  • Scoop
  • Wooden snowmen (optional)

*Follow this link to find out how to make cloud dough.

Normally I add lots of different things to my sensory trays, on this occasion I have gone with less is more.

As per usual, I set it up and left it on the table for BB to find when he came in. And as usual, he made a beeline for it when he saw it.

We had lots of fun making homes and other snowmen out of the mouldable cloud dough. BB even incorporated some Lego Star Wars ships into his play.
