SPIDER ICE MELT SET UP

I prepped these the night before and made two batches. I pushed a plastic spider into the tray. Next I  filled it with water! For one batch I tinted the water orange with food coloring. Once frozen, pop out the ice cubes and place them in a container! Finally, add a bowl of warm water and fill a squirt bottle if desired!

He thought this was so cool and couldn’t wait to get started! He spent a good amount of time working on the icy spider webs and freeing the spiders. We added a little bowl of salt to enhance our ice melt science play. This component is not an exact science as the surrounding temperature of course is not cold, but it is a fun idea to work in and talk about too.

Using eyedroppers, basters and squeeze bottles are also awesome for fine motor skills practice. Take a look at those little fingers working hard.  You can also add these plastic spiders to a sensory bin with a pair of tweezers to work on fine motor skills. In addition, pouring is a great skill to practice! He decided it was easier to hold the spiders and melt them!
