Alphabet Ice sensory play



J and C love the ice sensory play. So to add a little education to the fun play I took our alphabet magnets and placed then in ice trays with water and vinegar mix, then froze them to make ice.

Then I took them out the next day and set up a fun alphabet sensory play. Took some of the other alphabet toys we had and placed all around the table and added the ice cubes to it.

Then the kids added salt, water, vinegar and baking soda to the ice to get the letters out of the ice.

When they got the letters out of the ice we matched the upper and lower case letters together.


Materials:
Magnet letters(Dollar Tree) or any little letters you want to place in the ice.
Salt
Baking soda
Vinegar
Ice trays



This is a great fine motor skill along with eye/hand coordination for kids. Then they are playing as well as learning the letter reorganization.
