After being inspired by The Imagination Tree we decided to try some frozen dinosaur eggs this half term. This ice play activity was a fantastic sensory and science experience.
All you need is some balloons, water and some mini dinosaurs or if you want to go all out like we did some dinosaur bones. Just pop your dinosaurs into the balloons and carefully fill them with water, tie them and put them in the freezer over night.
We had lots of fun exploring the ice and ways in which we could melt it and excavate the dinosaurs and their bones. We explored using warm water, salt and also force using various tools. This activity gave us some great fine motor skills opportunities including different size pipettes and eventually building the dinosaur skeleton we excavated.
