Start the first day of the love month with this Valentine-themed ice play and let your kids experiment and discover ways to rescue the frozen bears.
This ice play activity is pretty easy to set up, you just need to prepare it the night before. Most of the supplies needed are probably available in your house.
We used our counting bears because they are the perfect size for our ice tray. They also have the colors red and purple – perfect for Valentine’s Day! Counting bears are amazing learning resources and can be used in a lot of activities.
Let’s set up the Frozen Bear 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:
The boys rescued the bears by melting the ice cubes with running water. They also enjoyed touching and picking up the ice using the tweezers and putting them in and out of the cups. We just have to refill the water every now and then until all the ice melted. Once all the bears were rescued, Niko sorted them by colors and placed them inside their matching cups.
This is such a simple activity, but with lots of fun!
