As part of my ongoing series, ABC Sensory, we’ve been exploring a different sensory activity for each letter of the alphabet.  And for today’s letter I sensory activity, we’ll be making Icebergs!  Find out below just how easy they are to make.  Plus, I created a FREE checklist to help you along the way.  Click the link to get access before getting started: FREE Idea Checklist: How To Create ABC Sensory Bins.

Directions

Fill two or three sandwich bags with water.  Add your letter I shapes to the bags and seal them closed. This iceberg sensory bin makes a GREAT summertime activity for kids! And it’s so easy to make too! What an awesome idea for sensory play! Place them on a flat surface in the freezer for a few hours until they’re frozen solid. As they freeze, the letter I shapes will settled to the bottom of the iceberg (which makes for a fun surprise later when the kids are playing). Fill a plastic bin with cold water.  Make the water as cold as possible to keep your icebergs from melting too fast. Stir in a few drops of blue food coloring to turn your water blue. This iceberg sensory bin makes a GREAT summertime activity for kids! And it’s so easy to make too! What an awesome idea for sensory play! Remove your frozen icebergs from the plastic sandwich bags and place them in the water. Add in some water animal toys and your iceberg sensory bin is all ready!

A Fun Surprise

As your icebergs begin to melt, the hidden letter I shapes will break free from the bottom of the icebergs and float around in the water! This iceberg sensory bin makes a GREAT summertime activity for kids! And it’s so easy to make too! What an awesome idea for sensory play!

Sneak In Some Learning

As your child is playing, try asking questions like: “What letter are we learning about today?” “What sound does the letter I make?” “I is for what?… Icebergs!” This iceberg sensory bin makes a GREAT summertime activity for kids! And it’s so easy to make too! What an awesome idea for sensory play!
