It may be fall in some parts of the world, but it is still hot as crap here!
We were battling the heat when I remembered that I saw a great idea somewhere
(I wish I was better at remembering where I get ideas from :( )
for playing with ice.
I pulled out a small cookie sheet and two cups.
gotta love that list :)
I filled one cup with ice and one with water and let Zadie go to town.
She never fails to surprise me by how much she enjoys everyday objects.
No fancy toy needed for this girl.
She LOVED her some ice!
"That's cold mommy"
"Look it melts"
"Oh, that water is cold"
(I know guys, it may be time to invest in new cookie sheets. It looks rough.)
When she started to get bored with the ice I whipped out the food coloring.
"Ooh pretty mommy"
Then we added some blue food coloring to the water that accumulated in the bottom of the pan.
"Look mom. It melts."
"It's so pretty."
And finally she began pouring.
overall I would say prep time compared to play time this activity was AWESOME!
We really had so much fun.
I hope this inspires you to take a look around the house for some fun toys.
It is always so inspiring to see the world through a child's eyes,
Everything is so new and exciting.
It's good for the soul.
