Playing With Colored Ice
One of our favorite activities is playing with colored ice! It’s so easy to make and I love that it inspires open ended play that allows my kids to be creative. All we do is fill an ice cube tray (or two) with water and add liquid food coloring drops to each individual cube to make an assortment of colors. This makes for simple summer fun.
The possibilities are endless. Below are just a few examples of what your child can do.
Play Tic Tac Toe
Science Exploration (In this case, observe the melting rate in different colored surfaces)
Observe what happens when your structure melts
Make A Rainbow
Put the cubes back in the tray (motor skills)
There are so many ways to play. Make a tray and see where your children’s imagination takes them!
