Let me preface this by saying that I am aware that penguins and polar bears do not live together. LOL My son has been talking about polar bears a lot lately, so I asked him if he would like to create a polar bear habitat. HE brought the penguin into the play. Initially, I was going to set it up as a surprise invitation with a few polar bears, but he wanted to help so he did everything from filling up the containers for the "icebergs" to setting up the invitation and choosing the animals. I actually really like it when he is part of the process. Its a great time for dialogue and connection.
With incredibly hot temperatures, ice play is always well received.

Here are the containers I used to freeze the ice overnight.
