Frozen Toy Ice Cups
Our summer temperatures are continuing to rise making it truly unbearable to play outside. Yesterday in Phoenix we tied the record high heat on that day with 116°. My youngest daughter is three years old and wants to play outside all day. This week it’s even too warm for pool days so we are getting creative to enjoy the final days of summer before school starts. We’re having some fun playing with frozen toy ice cups that you can freeze over and over.
How to make frozen toy ice cups
- mini muffin tin
- your favorite character toys
Fill muffin tin with water and add characters. Put tin in freezer for at least four hours. We left our characters in the freezer overnight before taking them out to play. Remove frozen toy ice cups and play with them on a flat surface. We used a plastic pool and added a small amount of water to make the bottom extra slippery for our ice toys.
Play with the Disney frozen characters until they melt and then freeze them again for more fun!
My oldest daughter enjoyed playing in our yard under a shade tree with the frozen toy ice cups a few years ago during a summer heat wave too.
The frozen toy ice cups would make a great science project and addition to a preschool classroom sensory tub.

This is SUCH a great idea!
Thanks! Easiest project for so much fun!
We have a bunch of the Disney princess miniature dolls. We call them “littles” and they would be perfect frozen! You know, the ones that use to have the rubber clothes but now they are hard plastic and clip on like clothespins. We actually have Anna and Elsa, too. But I think Olaf is my favorite of all the ones pictured in your post.
I know exactly what you are talking about because we have a lot of those too. Olaf is so cute in ice but I love how Anna and Elsa look too!
Where do you get the little characters from?
Quite a few of the characters came in different FROZEN play sets from Walmart. There are a few in my post about celebrating a birthday with FROZEN.\
Sounds like a very cool idea. I will be trying it myself.
