Even if your winter is cold, it is a great time to look for different sights, sounds, tastes, and smells that are associated with winter. I created this winter senses scavenger hunt to help your child explore all their senses, including movement.
Winter Senses Scavenger Hunt Activities
Here are the fun ways you can encourage your child to explore with their senses over the winter months.
Since I live in the US and have a cold winter, these activities are mostly cold weather related. You can check out my other season’s sensory scavenger hunts to find one that fits the weather where you are:
- Spring Senses Scavenger Hunt
- Summer Senses Scavenger Hunt
- Fall Senses Scavenger Hunt
All of these activities should be completed with adult supervision. You can skip ones that might not be the best fit for your child or family.
