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!
