Hot & Cold Bowls

In Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, the cows try to negotiate with the farmer to get electric blankets. Apparently, the cold barn was not longer acceptable. We thought this was a great book for our Hot and Cold Sensory Bowls. Simple and easy, these sensory bowls allow for a more concrete discussion of hot and cold vocabulary. 


  1. Two large bowls
  2. Ice
  3. Metal Spoons
  4. Gloves
  5. Hand Warmers

Set up:

  1. Place the ice cubes and metal spoons in one bowl, and the gloves and hand-warmers in the other.  You’re ready to play!
