Me and B make tea have shared with us this wonderful idea on how to make colourful Ice Eggs. We would love to see how your eggs turn out. Please do share your photos with us on facebook or Twitter.

I’m sharing with you a super quick and easy sensory play idea involving these little egg moulds. I knew they’d come in handy one day.

These are so so easy that you can literally make up batches and then store them in the freezer. All you need for these ice eggs are the following:

  • Egg shaped moulds. I got ours from one of the pound shops.
  • Food colouring
  • A jug of Water
  • Small toys, coins, leaves, stones and “treasure” – basically anything small that is suitable for freezing. (Small parts are not recommended for young children)

First up, divide your “treasure” between the egg moulds. We added a couple of items to each mould.

Next fill your jug of water and add which your food colouring. Any colour works and you can do a mix of colours across the eggs.

Next comes the bit where you ask your toddler to be patient and anyone with a toddler probably knows that this isn’t as easy as it sounds.

You need to freeze your egg moulds and they will take a few hours.

Now if you don’t have a toddler that can wait a bit, perhaps do the whole “here’s some I prepared earlier” and get some out you made the night before. Sneaky hey!

B had so much fun and we’ve made so many more “ice eggs” for the coming spring sunshine.
