Here is a super easy activity to set up (and clean up) for your children. Its fun and great for hot weather when everyone wants to cool down.
Yesterday I bought some reusable ice cubes from our local shop for £1.50! They are just little plastic cubes filled with water which you pop in the freezer then use like regular ice cubes, then when you're done just put them back in the freezer! You can buy these on amazon too - UK readers go here and USA readers go here.
I added some star shaped cake cases that we have for some scooping and pouring.
After a while, Jake decided to use the water to wash his cars and bikes, and roped Poppy into helping too. Almost all water activities end up like this! Haha! I think I might make Jake his very own car washing kit soon...
Although Jake really enjoyed this activity I'm adding it to our Brilliant Baby Play series as it is perfect for 6-18 month olds. You can see more baby play ideas here:
