πŸŽ‰ Ice Ice Baby! πŸŽ‰ One of our all time favorite ice tricks is to freeze Pom Poms in water in an ice tray. The colors are 😍 worthy and the kids love playing around with them. They’re great for sensory play, ice cube racing and potion ingredients! If it’s cold enough where you are you could probably even put them outside overnight! Alas that’s not really the case here in Cali πŸ™ƒ

I is for Imagination! And kids are just FULL of the stuff. I put together one of my blank paper plate masks for my daughter and she painted and spotted it up and told me it was a rainbow Zebra. Dreams do come true when you use your imagination 🧠 πŸ’‘ 🎨 We then added an elastic and she continued to use her imagination while wearing it and playing around with her little brother. What would your imaginary animal be?

Invitation to Taste! πŸ˜‹ It’s β€˜I’ week over on @letsplaymama and it’s all about Ice, Imagination and Invitations to Play (ahem, or taste) #letsplayatoz_i November is a season of eating over here in America πŸ¦ƒ so what better way to warm up those taste buds than to have a taste test! I find this works best when your kiddos are invited to choose some things to taste themselves. Be sure to use descriptive words to describe the food, ie. β€˜yucky’ isn’t a tasteπŸ˜‰ Search β€œtaste test” on our website to get the full DIY on what we did.
