“The cold never bothered me anywayyyyyy!”

Anyone else have Frozen fanatics in your home?  
More importantly, any parents need a break for like 30-45 minutes?!?! 

If you answered, “Yes!!!” to both of these questions, I have the perfect activity for you kiddos!

* Disney Frozen Sensory Bin*
Time to Rescue Them!

It’s been getting really warm here in Southern California, and I wanted to encourage my toddler to spend some time outside to get some fresh air and soak up the sun!

So how do I do this?! 

This may sound familiar to many parents.

My 3.5 year old daughter, Tenley, will do anything as long as you make it a game! So I surprised her and said…

“Ah, Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf, Sven…and everybody is stuck in the ice! 
Tenley, do you want to be a superhero and save them?!”

“Tenley to the rescue!!!!!!”

She runs outside and plays, while I soak up the sun right next to her

…and dare I say it…

I got to sit back and relax for about 30-45 minutes!

Say what?!
Yes. It’s true!!

I am here to show you how easy this activity is to make and there are educational benefits to it too!

Benefits of Sensory Bins

Sensory Bins are the best, because they are so simple, but provide lots of benefits for kids. Typically, a sensory bin is a big container (a big plastic storage bin is commonly used) and it is filled with materials and objects that stimulate the five senses.  TASTE | HEARING | SIGHT | SMELL | TOUCH Sensory bins and sensory activities allow children to explore, discover, imagine, create, and learn while engaging their senses.

Sensory Bin Fillers

This is the fun part! Grab anything around the house that would stimulate the senses. Fun Examples: shaving cream, pom poms, water beads, beads, dry pasta, rice, sand, etc.

I tend to buy sensory bin fillers on Amazon and keep them on the side for when we create new sensory bins!

Reuse Your Plastic Containers!
(for Cold Water)

In Step 2, below, the photo shows how we reused our plastic food containers, like the parmesan container. Just make sure to wash them beforehand!

1 Separate Larger Bowl
(for Hot Water)

This will come in handy when you need to take the ice out of the plastic containers.

OPTIONAL: Blue Paint

I used washable blue paint and stirred in the water before freezing them, to give my sensory bin that blue icy Disney Frozen theme.

OPTIONAL: Ice Cube Tray

I thought it was fun to add blue ice in this Frozen Sensory Bin. I filled up the Ice Cube Tray and added washable blue paint then popped it in the freezer!

STEP ONE:

Collect + Gather!

TIP: Gather their toys when they are napping or sleeping at night! This minimizes your time to clean up and just dump their toys in water 😉 

STEP TWO

Time to Freeze!

Place the toys in your plastic containers and fill them up with water. 

OPTIONAL: if you’d like, you can mix in the blue washable paint in the water and stir it till it is well-mixed, then add the toys in. 

Once all the toys are in the water-filled containers, place them in the freezer.

STEP THREE

Pop The Ice Blocks Out!

Take your larger bowl and fill it up with warm/hot water, but be careful, you dont need to add too much water. Just enough to cover about 15% of the bottom of your frozen iced plastic containers. 

This helps pop the ice blocks out quickly!

STEP FOUR

Build Your Sensory Bin!

STEP FIVE

Have Fun!!!

Parents, sit back and enjoy watching your kids spend 30-45 minutes doing this! 

It is fun to see what tools and methods our kids use to try and rescue these Disney Frozen characters!
