Instead of writing one big long Tot School post, I’m going to start highlighting some individual activities that The Littlest Apple has enjoyed. This ice hammering activity was a HUGE hit at our house, perfect for those hot summer afternoons. The Littlest Apple has asked for it many times since we first tried this a few days ago. Just freeze some small trinkets overnight in a bowl full of water. I used gold coins and fish leftover from our sensory bins, cookie cutters and other playdough accessories, and a few little vehicles. Then just pop the big ice block out, give your kiddo a hammer (a REAL one!) and let them try to “rescue” the trinkets from the ice. What kid doesn’t love smashing things?! We’ll be doing this activity again soon!
