This activity was inspired by the book Penguins Love Colors by Sarah Aspinall. It is the cutest book! The penguins are named after flowers, and the green one named broccoli is always the class favorite!
Sometimes it's the simplest things that are the best! Grab some penguin figurines.
Put 'em in small cups and add a bit of water. Freeze overnight and you're ready for hours of play the next day!
I usually put them right in my sensory table with some snow. If you don't live in a cold climate, cotton balls would work too. You could also add water to a pot or pan and freeze it to make a larger iceberg.
Add some food coloring or liquid water colors to tap water. Give the kids pipettes and let them have at it! They'll love squeezing the colors onto the ice and snow.
List of materials:
I used these adorable little penguins from Learning Resources, but any small penguins would work.
