play time – too cool for school

It’s not quite summer yet but we’ve had a few scorching days here already.  So
we are loving these fabulous ideas with ice that are sure to keep the kids
entertained and focussed for hours, all whilst staying cool.

Freeze balloons filled with water and small toys. Cut balloon off and play with eggs outside. Provide spoons for cracking ice and digging treasures out. 

This is the same concept on a larger scale!  Fill a large tray with plastic animals, dinosaurs or whatever your little one is into!  Freeze, then watch them dig away for hours to release the treasure.
