A nice idea to cool a little one down in summer from Kirsty Richards
Equipment: Rubber gloves, paint, sea animals
Instructions: I mixed water and paint together and poured it into the glove: I made 4 different colours. I then put some sea animals into each glove and put them in the freezer. The next day I filled the tray with warmish water and placed the gloves inside. My lg explored them and said that they were cold, we spoke about the colours. I then cut the gloves open and showed her the animals that were inside. We spoke about the ice melting and she tried to get the animals out. This activity is great as it brings so much communication out. You can speak about the colours, the animals, the texture, how cold it is and more.
