This week in our Alphabet Exploration was the letter I. Since I couldn’t think of a lot of I words G knows, our options were ice and ice cream. So we talked about I is for ice cream and Ice all week. On Tuesday night, I had an idea to help reinforce the ice cream concept for G:
So I sent an invite on Wednesday to all our toddler friends and mamas (along with the grandparents) and on Friday afternoon we had a houseful of little ones!
This ended up being a great idea for a playdate. I just laid out all the supplies to create ice cream dreams and let everybody serve themselves, stirred up some Strawberry Lemonade, and sat back and enjoyed the fun.
We used disposable bowls, so there was limited mess to clean up.
It looked like everyone enjoyed themselves. Oh, and G likes ice cream…a bunch!
I am looking forward to future impromptu play dates with themes!
