BestPlay for HumpDay - Frozen Fun!

An ice cube tray, some pieces of cut-up fruit

Pour some water into an ice cube tray or fill some small cups half way. Add a piece of cut up fruit to each one. Try strawberry pieces, watermelon or seedless grapes that have been cut in half across the middle. Once they’re frozen, pop a few cubes out into a bowl and place it near your baby who is propped up on a towel or in any other comfortable, water-friendly spot. Oh, the joy of being able to grab that slippery shape and actually hold onto it long enough to get it into their mouth! There will be lots of dripping and splashing but the reward of that sweet, tasty morsel once the ice melts will be worth the effort!
