I found this fun activity from a great blog here
I follow, you fill a bowl or container with water and whatever little plastic animals you have (I also added some other fun stuff) put it in the freezer overnight. Bring out the next day and let the kids excavate the animals out of the ice, we used medicine droppers with warm water, 3 small bowls of salt, some hammers and golf tees, and dropper bottles filled with warm salt water. The kids had so much fun that we have now done it a few times!
So this is one of the bowls we started with, after the first day I decided I needed to make 5/6 different ones so that all the kids who were here could join as well!
Dustin's friend was over one of the days to enjoy this activity with us!
Here are some of the animal partially out
Even Serena joined in and enjoyed it!
