Frozen Sea Creatures

All children love playing with, watching and experimenting with ice. We have had such hot weather lately, so I thought I would combine a painting activity with a sensory ice experience and.......

They loved it!!!

I froze small fish, sharks and whales in blue and green edicole dye.

 I used icy pole containers and put one, two or three sea creatures in each until the fins were sticking out the top. These were our handles.

The children painted with the dye and then washed the remaining ice in a giant fish bowl.

It was very messy and children even went home with blue and green toes as the dye was everywhere!!

It was a lot of fun and the children all wanted to play with the ice all at once. If you want a fun sensory activity then this is for you.
Have fun
