Our dressing up style winter Sensory Story uses simple language to make it as accessible to as many as possible. There should be no difficulty in adjusting the level of this activity to suit the needs of your class, whether that entails increasing or decreasing the complexity as necessary.

Our Other Winter Themed Sensory Stories:-

Tips for delivery:

Speak slowly and deliberately to allow children time to visualise and imagine the scene you are describing. It is crucial to offer youngsters ample opportunities to engage in this process, as it helps foster their creativity and cognitive development.

By allowing them to fully immerse themselves in the scene you are describing, you enhance their comprehension skills and stimulate their imaginations even further.

Depending on your learner profile, PMLD, SEN or EYFS Pause occasionally to ask questions that prompt the children to use their senses, like “What sounds do you hear?” or “How does the snow feel on your hands?”

A Winter Themed Immersive Sensory Space

Create an immersive learning space in such a way that your learners can already start picturing the winter atmosphere:

  1. Use white sheets, tablecloths, or tarps to cover tables and make a “snowy” backdrop.
  2. Add snowflake decorations made from paper, lace, or plastic to hang from the ceiling and walls.
  3. Fill bins or trays with “snow” made from shredded paper, shaving foam, or foam beads for children to play and build with.
  4. Provide winter-themed props like mittens, scarves, hats, and shovels for pretend play.
  5. Display photographs of winter scenes and activities for children to look at and discuss.
  6. Have winter-themed books available for children to explore
  7. Play soft winter music in the background to set the mood.
  8. Include snow and winter related art supplies like white and blue construction paper, glue, googly eyes, cotton balls, etc.
  9. Set up a pretend igloo with blankets, sheets and pillows for cozy reading nooks.
  10. Bake winter-themed snacks together like snowman cookies and decorate them as a group activity.

Have the children make their own snowman after the story using play dough, clay, or other materials for tactile learning and creative expression.
