Frozen Ice Play

“That should keep the kids occupied for half an hour,” I said to my husband who was sitting at the computer desk going through paperwork. 

I was wrong.

The activity I set up kept the kids occupied for well over an hour.

You see, I have these little things up my sleeve sometimes, ready to bring out at an opportune moment.  All I had done to prepare was to freeze water in different shaped plastic containers. These babies were just sitting in the freezer alongside the bread and frozen peas.

I have a dedicated underbed storage container for these types of play activities. To set it all up, I simply placed the large rectangle block (still in the plastic container) in the underbed container for an ice rink, and then removed the other different sized shapes from their containers and put them in there too (good for making an ice castle). A few themed figurines (like Frozen or even other plastic figurines) were thrown in and THAT WAS IT! BAM! Over an hour of awesome play.

The kids moved the ice blocks around, they added other toys and played happily together on the hot Sunday afternoon until the ice melted into a cool pool.

    Hi Kelly, can I ask where you got theFrozen figurines from please? My youngest is obsessed with Frozen, but all the things in the shops are overtly girly. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

      Look on eBay. “Frozen Figurines” or ‘Frozen Cake Toppers’

      Just make sure they are authentic because there are a lot of fake ones around.

    Wow! You just made me jealous of your freezer size! My itty bitty freezer is chock full at the moment but I will have to remember to throw some buckets of water in when I get a chance.
