There are not a ton of things that you can do with a little one his age when everything goes in his mouth still (geez, I am so ready for this phase to be over with). We have done baby safe finger paints already so what was next? I came across some other blogs having kids play with ice cubes on a hot day so I figured it would be just as fun in the bath tub. My only mistake is that I poured the water in the cubes, then dyed them with food coloring. Next time I will color and then pour, because the colors were way too saturated and heavy.
I wanted to start slowly and only give him one at a time so he could concentrate on them. I only used half of them because 16 would have taken forever.
"What is going on mommy?"
I handed him the green one and the first thing he did was eat it.
I got it out of his mouth threw it in the water. He chased it around for a while until it melted and then I threw in another one.
I did empty the tub halfway through so we could have clear water again but next time we do this with less saturated ice cubes, I hopefully will not have to do that.
He is always so happy when we wrap him in a towel. Since I had my camera sitting there, I had to snap a picture of it.
Oh my goodness I just love him!
Hopefully, no definitely, I will have a new activity next week. (Okay, I am cheating and already have it done).
