This messy activity is more suitable for children over the age of two as the spiders and bugs can be small.
You will need:
- Ice cube trays
- Plastic spiders and bugs
As a group the children can place the plastic bugs and spiders into the ice cube trays, then fill the trays with water and place in the freezer. Once frozen place the ice cubes into a tray or onto the table for the children to play with. As the cubes melt the children can play with the bugs hidden inside.
