This morning in baby room the babies looked at different animals that were in the ice, we used the warm water to pour over the ice blocks to melt the ice and discover the different animals that were hidden inside. The babies picked the ice up and quickly dropped it again as it was cold on their hands, they then slashed in the water to warm their hands up.

When the ice had melted the babies enjoyed holding the animals now, they weren’t freezing. In this activity we looked at the different textures of the cold ice and warm water and the water beads. The water beads are at the bottom of the water we added these for more textures and so the babies could look at the different colours moving under the water. Babies really did enjoy this activity today. The babies were babbling and laughing when they splashed in the water.
