There is so much fun to be had with frozen water. A few choice dinosaurs frozen in a tupperware pot bring out everyone's latent archeologist. The children have used their problem solving skills to find tools to release them from a mini ice age.
We have also had a lot of mysterious dinosaur eggs lying around- aka water ballooons frozen overnight. Of course they need collecting and putting into a nest.
I have had many dinosaur conversations with the children this week - many revealed an ardent love of these reptiles. It's amazing how many species very young children can name accurately - not easy with such complicated language.
We are carrying on with our icy theme for as long as the children are interested.
Here are a few ideas from the web to keep you going at home too.
Happy Hooligans always have great ideas to inspire - I like these icy gloves.
There are 200 Winter Science activities to keep you going at Igamemom.com and of course
the best place for ideas is Pinterest - spring will be here before you get through this lot.
