Reeeally hot man.
The kids have been cranky.
Reeeally super-@*&! cranky.
What's a mother to do?...
PLAY WITH ICE!
What you need:
- a good blender or some other gadget that will shave your ice to snow consistency
- food coloring
What you do:
Shave ice. Dump in bucket. Add food coloring. Let play. Sit back and enjoy...
This activity started at the table in a big plastic container, it then evolved into a build-your-own-snowball-then-eat-it-or-throw-it-around event.
Whatevs... they were happy, entertained and cooling off.
A simple sensory play idea that they thought was the bee's knees... lol!
I know the boy looks sad, but that's only because I wouldn't let him dump the entire thing in the pool... wah wah...
P.S: don't forget to save some of that ice for a margarita :)
Please leave me a comment, I would love your feedback. Thanks!
