    I am trying to find items to put in sand and water table for December and January. What are somethings you do? I have been searching online, but have not found anything I really like. When I get home from work I will try pinterest when I am able to access it. I just want to see what other teachers use.

    -snowflake ornaments (get the flat ones and snip off the string), blue/teal/white puff balls, cotton balls, blue and white tongs
    -Freeze items in large ice cubes and put into water table
    -Polar animals and ice cubes in the water table
    -Snow in the table with tempera paint and brushes

    If you look on pinterest for discovery bottles you'll probably get lots of good ideas.

    What about pine cones, twisty ties ( they are on so many toys), cookie cutters, mini carrots (snowman noses), twigs (snowman arms), garland cut into small strips. I have never used these in tables but thinking of stuff that we use. Lol.

    I love the cookie cutter idea. They could trace them afterward. Small plastic snowglobes would be fun, too.

    I have the ones my mother used when I was a kid! They're in a glass canister. I love cookie cutters.
