Do you like to teach about different seasons in your homeschool? I like to bring in themes from the world around us so that it’s something that we can study further, these ice activities for kids will keep them busy indoors where they can stay warm or they can head outside and experience them first hand.
My son watched some great documentaries about the arctic and he’s such a lover of animals that in the study of ice. We talked about the penguins in the antarctic and the polar bears in the arctic and his favorite are whales which can travel throughout the oceans.
Grab a wintery book and snuggle up together as you read to stay warm.
You can make your own ice cream at home, or head on outdoors to go ice skating, tobogganing or build your own snowman. Be sure to fill up your ice cube trays so you can try some of these ice activities with your kids.
