Alphabet Blocks.....of Ice.

Alphabet ice blocks

 Our first play with these perfect cube ice molds ------>  is HERE.  Today, we revisited them in a whole new way - alphabet blocks.  So fun!  We used LETTER JEWELS and simply froze them in the molds.

Check out more alphabet ice play -----> HERE.

  Its an obvious opportunity to learn about hot/cold, melting, properties of water, etc.....but you can also.......

...talk about and build sight words - for older children.

...create the alphabet....or play "insert the missing letter"

...incorporate heavy machinery

"Its carrying the K block"

...smash them......there are NO letter in the ones he smashed

...build CVC words - for older children
Just explore, play, and have fun!!

Some other options...

  • put same colored letters together
  • stack cubes
  • slide them down a rain gutter - "there goes the G block"
  • separate into consonants and vowels
  • spell name
  • match letters to objects with corresponding beginning sounds
  • etc................



  1. Hi, great idea for summer play! But I'm curious - where did you get the trucks your son is playing? I'm looking for a set with moving parts for my 2 1/2 year old. Thanks!

  2. Where did you get the letters? Great idea for those hot days!

  3. Cute! Great idea for summer play. How did you put the letters in the ice cubes?
