Mommy & Me Monday: Iceberg Play!!

Your kids will think you are the coolest mom ever if you make them this fun (and easy) activity. Simply freeze some bowls of water in your freezer and you have instant icebergs. I have this exact activity out in my Montessori classroom now as we are studying arctic animals. I place the iceberg on a blue tray (which represents the arctic ocean) and added a basket with arctic animals. This exact set of animals can be found at Michael's or Hobby Lobby. It it the Safari Arctic Animal TOOB. Of course you could use any small animals and your kids will have a blast. Keep a small towel on hand for them to wipe cold hands on. It doesn't get much easier than this. Add in a literacy component by reading some books and stories about arctic animals. Have fun!!
