Cool off with a baby-friendly ice sensory activity! It's easy to make and use!
Along with breaking out the pool to cool off every day, we found some other activities to do outside and make the heat more tolerable. From easy ice sensory activities to sweet treats, we beat the heat.
Admittedly, it’s a little harder to find something that all the boys can enjoy. Which is why this easy and fun baby ice sensory activity just became my new favorite summer thing.

Something easy for George to do\ that kept him cool was simply a bowl of ice cubes.
You guys…that’s it.
To make your own ice sensory activity for your baby, you’ll need:
- a bowl

Though they didn’t stay frozen long, we added to them to keep the activity going.
George particularly enjoyed the ice! Henry also loved it, too.

I think the chill of the ice kind of scared him at times!
Once the ice melted a little from the heat or George slobbering all over them, they became super slippery. Which made it almost impossible for George to grab them.
He tried and tried, over and over.
Until it finally led into a complete meltdown. Pun intended.
George had enough after that.
He dumped out the ice and moved on to other things.
