Let's Break the Ice: Summer Toddler Activity

It has been unbearably hot in Texas this summer. It's been in the triple digits and the high 90's most of August and now September. I  really don't like having Jett being cooped up in the house. He just gets so bored inside the house. You can only color, paint & play with your toys so much.

I wanted to find a fun activity for my busy minded two year old that would keep us cool outside. I then found this on pinterest and saw another mama on FB doing this with her little one. It was just what we needed!

I grabbed the largest tupperware container I had. Took the legos bag & the cheap plastic magnets. I then had Jett throw into the container a variety of those toys. We then just filled it up with water. Then stuck in the freezer overnight.

The next day I had Jett bring is play tools out. .We went outside I took the block of ice out of the container and he started to chisel and bang away. It didn't take long for the ice to start to melt, which made it easier for Jett to get the toys out. This activity lasted us a good 30 minutes or so. He had a blast and wanted to do it again. Definitely a hit for my 2.5 year old.
