Ice Cube Chase {Playing With Baby, Day 17}

I did a little brainstorming session to come up with a list of fun new activities for my ten month old and decided to share them with you over the next month in a series called 20 Days of Playing With Baby.  None of these ideas are Earth shattering, supper cool, never been done before activities but maybe you haven’t tried them before or maybe they will help spark a fun new activity of your own.

For this activity I used:

  • Water
  • Food coloring
  • Ice cube trays
  • Plastic bin

The set up for this activity is very easy.  I used food coloring to make a few different colors of water then froze the water in ice cube trays.  Henry, please show these fine folks our colorful ice cubes.Ice Cube Chase {Playing With Baby, Day 17} -

I then filled a plastic bin with some water and added the ice cubes.  Henry thought it was great fun to chase the slippery ice cubes around in the water.Ice Cube Chase {Playing With Baby, Day 17} -

Of course he had to see how they taste.Ice Cube Chase {Playing With Baby, Day 17} -

The ice cubes melted pretty quickly.  Since Henry was bummed about that I added some regular ice cubes and toys to the water.Ice Cube Chase {Playing With Baby, Day 17} -

When those ice cubes melted he was content to splash in the water and observe the water run down his arm and drip on his leg.Ice Cube Chase {Playing With Baby, Day 17} -

He also enjoyed scooping the water up with his toy and pouring it back out.Ice Cube Chase {Playing With Baby, Day 17} -

Ahhh…..I love cheap and easy fun!
