Week 7: Ice and Water completed!

7 Mar




The weather yesterday was perfect for our Week 7 activity! Here are the ice cubes that my partner in crime prepared for the girls:Blog IMG_5908


You’ll see in a photo below they looked really cool – the colour centered itself as a ball in the middle of the ice cubes.

Princess Peanut and SweetPea were straight into the activity, without hesitation. Working on their fine motor and hand-eye coordination by picking up those ice cubes straight away!

Here are the ice cubes and you can see those balls of colour inside the cubes! The girls enjoyed chasing them around in the container.

It wasn’t long before SweetPea was ready to take a dip – hehe!

The water is not so pretty after the ice cubes have melted!

Ok, I was surprised with this one! Princess Peanut decided to follow SweetPea’s lead and tested the water out! But – oooh it’s cold! She practically jumped out, before turning around and heading straight back in to the container!

Summary/ Verdict: We loved this activity! Perfect for Summer, especially in this run of hot days! I’m hoping to do this again some time this week! Easy to prepare, just have to think ahead to prepare the ice cubes. Cheap – ie. no real expense! and…FUN!!

Extensions/ Adaptions: More ice cubes!!! Because of the heat the ice cubes melted before too long (although the girls got quite a bit of play out of them anyway). Might have to try her blow up pool, or SweetPea’s clam shell next time 😉
