Ice Play Activities
Simple Sensory Play
Hands On Play For Any Time Of The Year
Ice makes an amazing sensory play material. It’s free (unless you buy a bag), always available and pretty cool too! Ice and water play make the best non-messy, messy play around. Keep a couple towels handy and you are good to go! Looking back over the past few months, I saw how many ways we have played with ice and wanted to share them all together. We have even enjoyed ice play in the coldest months!
Why Sensory Play For Children?
Ice Play For All Year Long
The simple act of melting ice is a great science experiment for the youngest child. This type of play opens up so many avenues for exploring, discovering and learning about the world! Provide your child with squirt bottles, eye droppers, scoops, and basters and you will also work strengthening those little hands for handwriting down the road!
Spring/Summer Ice Play
Lemon Lime Scented Ice Play
For this activity, I froze lemon and lime scented water in all different sized containers. I used bottled lemon and lime juice and tinted the water with yellow and green food coloring as well. He decide to use his super soaker back pack outside on the blocks of ice.
Fall/Winter Ice Play
I love how simple materials, that are readily available, create opportunities for observing, examining and thinking. Problem solving, formulating guesses, making predictions and enjoying the process will set him up for years of success! Don’t forget how much fun he is really having too! Open the freezer and see what you can do today!
