The Busy Ice Block


It has been extremely HOT outside! Going to the pool, running through the sprinkler, and eating popsicles are all great on days like this but this week I found a new idea on pinterest...freeze a handful of objects/toys in a tub of water. Then when it is frozen take it out in the sun on a hot day. As it melts give your toddler a variety of tools to figure out how they can get the objects/toys out. We had fun with this one!


We started with a couple of metal spoons, a pie server, a toy hammer, and a wooden stick. He had fun chipping the ice away as it melted, but then we moved on to bigger and better...


A real hammer! Once we got that out we quickly broke through. That was an exciting moment. :)


What do you like to do to stay cool on the REALLY HOT days?
