Begin the first day of February with Valentine-themed ice play. Let your kids experiment and discover ways to rescue the frozen bears.
Setting up this ice play activity is simple; just prepare it the night before. You likely have most of the needed supplies at home. We opted for counting bears, as they’re the ideal size for our ice tray and come in the perfect Valentine’s colors of red and purple. Counting bears are versatile learning tools that can be used in various activities.
How to create a Valentine bears rescue activity:
- Ice tray
- Purple and red counting bears
- Empty squeeze bottle
- Cups and tweezers
- Place the bears in the ice tray and fill with water.
- Freeze overnight.
The next day:
- Fill the squeeze bottle with water
- Place the ice cubes in the tray
- Invite the kids to play
How we played:
- Allow the kids to melt the ice cubes to rescue the bears using running water.
- Use tweezers to pick up the ice and transfer the rescued bears to the cups.
