Snow Bucket

This is our new favorite thing to do in the winter time! I originally saw a photo of the idea here and I ran with it!
This cost me $8.00 and has already proven it’s worth over and over again! 
 We haven’t had much snow yet this season but scooping it into this long, shallow tote bucket has been a novelty around my house! my little guy LOVES it! He gets to play in the snow without all the layers and the cold nose and toes! (throw a couple of towels over the table, fill the bucket and let them play)
 My older kids love it too! We’ve built tunnels, forts, snowballs, hideouts, etc for their small toys and action figures. I pulled out some of the shovels and other digging toys from the sandbox, throw in a few kitchen spoons and cups and they will create their own fun!!
We even had a “hot tub” in the snow for some of the toys! You know, PO needs a good soak after his Kung Fu fighting 🙂 
I’ll be sharing my idea at these linky parties!


  1. This is awesome!! I love doing sensory bins with my daughter…this is a great way to bring the outside in for your kiddos!

    PS- I was secretly hoping you had a tutorial on how to make snow for the sensory bin…since I live in AZ 😉

  2. What fun this is! Great idea! I’m over visiting from the Mad Skills link party.
