There was a complete degeneration into utter silliness - which I must admit was started by me - when we were all dropping ice cubes down each other's backs!
The ice kept them occupied until it melted - and as such was very easy to clean up! Pour away the water and wipe up some footprints off the floor. Job's a good 'un as they say!
Next time I want to try adding other things to the ice - different colours, scents, glitter, sequins, possibly some small world toys! Have you tried ice play with your children?
Lots of people have asked where our Tuff Spot came from so I thought I'd just add the link in for the one we bought:Tuff Spot from Amazon - his was the best price I found at the time but it's worth shopping around!
