ice bath play

18th 04 2018. Posted in Family, Making & Baking by elliekelly


I got the idea for this bath play from a lovely lady on instagram.

I dunked a few of Neive’s plastic toys in water and popped them in the freezer overnight. Bing needed a little help to stay under the water 🙂


Neive was fascinated as soon as I showed them to her and couldn’t wait to get in the bath to ‘set them free’.


She had fun swishing them around getting them to melt and trying to pull them out and i got to introduce her to a few new words ice, melt and frozen (we did ice play in the padding pool when she was little but she won’t remember that).

Ding this outside might be just perfect this week with expected our heatwave!
