Yummy Edible Frozen Excavation Sensory Play for Kids!

To make your own edible frozen excavation, you’ll need:

  • berries or fruits, fresh or frozen
  • ice cube tray
  • a big freezer-safe container
  • water
  • a freezer
  • toy/child-friendly hammer, pliers, screwdriver, etc

Fruits maybe blueberries, black raspberries, or grapes. Add them to an ice cube tray partially filled with water and freeze them.

Can also use bigger freezer-safe container to make a giant block of “treasure” for them to uncover later. If you don’t have an ice cube tray handy, you could just make one or more bigger frozen fruit blocks.




The children tend to snack on as much of the fruit as they do “burying” them.

When the “treasures” are mostly frozen, add them to a cake pan to combine them all together.

You can put the cake pan with water in the freezer to get chilled for a little bit before adding the fruit. This method works really well for bigger containers.
