I stumbled upon this beautiful (and easy) craft on My Little Hen and children as young as nine months old can enjoy this craft because if they are given the items in their hand, they can drop them into the aluminum pan. Older infants can actually go beyond that and collect the snow, allow it to melt and pour the water into the aluminum pan insha'Allah.
When the picture was frozen and ready to be explored, I took the opportunity to point out and name each of the items encased in the ice and mention that it is Allah who Created each of these things, including the ice. I also used this time to introduce and reinforce the concept of temperature and textures (i.e. cold, rough, smooth, etc.). This was an activity that was truly enjoyed alhamdulillah.
This is a great motor and sensory activity for infants and toddlers during the winter months and I hope you and your children have the chance to make an ice picture insha'Allah.
*Note: I recommend using melted snow because for many around the world, water is a precious, and often hard to come by, resource. I do not know the Islamic ruling on using water on such an activity as this but to err on the side of caution I thought it best to use melted snow instead of water that can be used to drink or cook with and waallahu alim.*
