This is another idea I've been holding on to for summer time. I wanted to wait for a nice hot day and bring out a bunch of colored ice cubes to play with. I was getting the boys ready for a bath and I thought, "Hey, why not toss some in the tub!". I put six muffin tin ice cubes in the water and the boys loved it. The ice immediately started melting and the colors started swirling in the water. The boys had so much fun fishing the ice out of the water and having it slip away. It was also a great opportunity to talk about colors, melting, warm and cold. Warning: the water in the tub will be a funky brown by the end of the bath:) I've got a gallon sized zip lock bag of them made up in my freezer, ready for the next hot day or warm bath:)
To Make: Fill the muffin tin with water and add a drop or to of food coloring to each muffin hole. I did this with Caden and he really enjoyed watching the colors appear.
