Ice Sensory Play

This week's activity might require some planning on your part: your children are playing with ice cubes!

Of course, you can just give them some ice cubes and bowls and let them play. But if you want to make it a bit more fun, freeze fruit, small toys, or pom poms in water in an ice cube tray and let your child play with the ice cubes as the ice melts and the fruit or toys are revealed.

If you freeze fruit, I recommend cutting it into thin long pieces or small pea-sized pieces, so that your child doesn't choke on it if they eat it while it's still frozen, and always supervise closely so they don't put too much in their mouth.

I also recommend not to give them both frozen fruit and frozen toys at the same time so they don't try to eat the toys. 

You can also freeze juice, pureed fruit, or yogurt in ice cube trays and let your child play with them and taste them as they melt, but of course, this makes a big sticky mess. It's up to you if you want to deal with that!

Don't forget to use the hashtag #52weeksofsensory and tag @highchairchronicles if you post any pictures on social media!
