Patriotic Ice Play

Ever since he played with his frozen pirate ships, Trevor has been in love with ice play.  When I saw a star-shaped ice cube tray in the Dollar Spot at Target I knew Trevor would have a blast playing with the star-shaped ice.  In honor of Independence Day I colored the ice red and blue by adding one drop of food coloring to each star before freezing them.  It’s always fun to put a holiday twist on our sensory play!

We did 2 different projects with these ice cubes.  First I let him do some ice cube painting, and then when that had run it’s course I took the paper out of the bin and added water.  Trevor always loves splashing!
