Making Frozen Caps
Place the caps in ice cube trays. The caps are the perfect size to freeze in typical ice cube trays.
In the large cube tray I placed two in each. Place the trays in the freezer over night.
Playing with Frozen Caps
Other than playing with Frozen Caps in a sensory bin you can play with them in your water table.
When setting up a sensory bin, there are also are lots of ways that you can play with Frozen Caps. You could do a STEM sensory bin, where your little one explores different ways to melt the caps, including using salt and warm water with a variety of fine motor tools.
You could do a colour sorting sensory bin where you little one melts the caps and then sorts them into colouful bowls.
Another idea is to set up a kitchen sensory bin similar to Caps Kitchen but with frozen caps. And your little one could melt the caps and then pretend to prepare a meal.
