Ice sculpting

Zander and I started doing this last summer out in the back yard, but ice play is easily moved indoors for the winter. Most of the supplies you need you’ll find in the kitchen, and the only prep required  is to fill some small plastic food containers with water the night before for a variety of ice blocks.

Eye droppers, food coloring, salt, (baking soda & vinegar for a fizzy surprise!)

Zander especially enjoyed mixing colors in the ice and watching the effects of salt as it bore holes in the surface of the blocks.

Next time I’ll throw some little plastic creatures (bugs, dinosaurs?) into the ice containers for us to melt free!
