Sharav loves water play but never played with an ice in particular. So I decided to involve him in setting up some colour ice in a popsicle tray.

You can do it in normal ice tray or shapes ice tray as well. All I wanted was to involve him as much and let him understand the process what are we doing.

He might not have got it fully that how water became an ice but I am sure after doing this for more two three times he would understand it completely.

So the idea behind was to keep it more sensory based & Montessori way –

πŸ‘‰ Pouring water into the moulds
πŸ‘‰ Mixing colours into the water
πŸ‘‰ Placing the Lids correctly
πŸ‘‰ Feeling the Ice Popsicles
πŸ‘‰ Touch and Feel cold object
πŸ‘‰ Treat to watch colourful Popsicles
πŸ‘‰ See the popsicles melt into water again
πŸ‘‰ How colours mix with eachother while melting.
πŸ‘‰ Placing the popsicles back into the mould

You can experiment with ICE in many ways.

πŸ‘‰ Hiding a toy inside the Ice & Rescue it with a hammer.
πŸ‘‰ Pretend Play like feeding Toys & Figurines
πŸ‘‰ Try making multicolour/ Rainbow Popsicles
πŸ‘‰ Do Ice Painting on Old Clothes
πŸ‘‰ Add natural fruit Juices for them to relish. Etc

This can be done with toddlers above 6 months as well just make sure they don’t mouth it and let them enjoy a pack of ice or ice popsicle for their sensory Development.

For toddlers above 18 months try and involve them in the whole process from start which would be more exciting for their sensory & Fine motor developments.

Hope you enjoyed watching this activity as much as we did.

Have an ICE day!
