How We Did It

The Frozen Alphabet
To prepare for "The Frozen Alphabet", put one plastic letter in each part of the ice cube tray or in a small container, fill it with water, and freeze. The plastic letters wanted to float so I pushed them down in the tray and the container as much as possible.
The Frozen Alphabet
I filled our sand table with water and dumped the letter ice cubes in. If you don't have a sand or water table you can use a large container filled with water or even a small baby pool.
The Frozen Alphabet
Grab the letters with your hands, a slotted spoon, tongs, or a net. If they were still frozen, N had to put it back and look for a new one. She felt sorry for the letters all frozen in those ice cubes and decided she wanted to help them escape.
The Frozen Alphabet
As you help each letter escape its cube, say the letter and/or letter sound and transfer it to "safety" (a bowl or tray).
The Frozen Alphabet
She was so happy to rescue the letter M for me! To put a twist on this activity, fill your water table or container with ice and just a little water and hide the letters in the ice. Your child can explore and dig through the cold cubes to find the letters.
