Ice in the Sensory Table


This is an oldie, but always a goodie! Freeze anything small in containers of water. Supply hammers (and safety glasses, if you have them), and stand back. On this particular day, we were chiseling out bugs for The Great Outdoors Camp. This is a water table that my co-teacher rescued from a local elementary teacher who no longer needed it. We love it! Our other (home-made) sensory tables are much smaller.
