Ice is a Great Way to Cool Off in Summer Heat
This is a fine way to entertain and cool off during summer heat - a great 2-fer-1 deal!
Ingredients: plastic tub, water, food coloring, freezer
Fill a plastic tub at least 2/3 full with water. Add swirls of food coloring. Freeze. Ours froze with weird lines, but I found out the lines corresponded with the rungs on the freezer shelves.
First we played with the ice in the tub.
Then we dumped out the ice and played.
Next we added water to the ice to see what happened (different color for a different day).
Finally we smashed the ice to smithereens.
Can't beat this cheap activity!
PS There was minimal staining on hands from food coloring. It didn't even last the entire activity.
