Icy Cold Play On A Hot Summer Day!

July 29th, 2012 | Posted by Angela in Sensory Play | unschool

The heat of summer is here.  The kids were wanting to play outside.  Our pool feels like a warm bath not a refreshing oasis so that was not an option.  We had a 10 pound bag of ice left over from Ava’s birthday party and  I had an idea…ice sensory play on this super hot day!

I went into the kitchen and grabbed a few bowls, spoons, bottles of colored water, and some shaving cream for good measure!

We headed out to the front yard to play.   The first thing that they did was make rainbow soup…..
