Great Sensory and Fine Motor Therapy Idea: Playing With Tiny Ice

Here is a great post by our friend Jessie over at Play Create Explore.  What a great way to  present some simple fun that advances both fine motor and sensory goals.

I bought an ice cube tray that makes tiny little ice pellets at a thrift store. I needed a simple activity for L to do while I was making dinner so I brought out the tray from the freezer and dumped the pellets into a bowl. I gave L the empty ice tray, small tongs, and another small bowl of warm water. He transferred the ice pellets back into their holes in the ice tray, and he also melted a bunch of ice in the warm water. This kept him busy long enough to make dinner…a simple success!
