Frozen toy fun for kids!

Pinterest helped me with this fun idea for Brody! I froze some of his toys into a container (you had to freeze in layers, as toys float to the top), and once it was ready we plopped it into his plastic pool and let him dig away. 

This kept him busy and happy for almost an hour. He had been asking me about it ALL day if his "big ice" was done yet. I loved this activity and can't wait to do more in summer. For fun I think I will color the next one blue -- like the ocean! Isn't amazing how something free and simple entertains a toddler?
