This is another awesome activity the kids and I did over Christmas break. We tried to keep busy every day to avoid going stir crazy inside the house. I have these awesome ice cube trays that shape the ice into perfect cubes. I figured they would make fun blocks for the kids with a little food colouring added to them. The kids had a blast. One word of caution though, the colours will run and will get on your kids outside clothes. I gave them dark coloured mitts to play with them so you couldn't really tell if they were getting stained. Here's how we made them:
What you need:
ice cube trays
1. pour your water into your ice cube trays.
2. add food colouring into each cube and stir - you'll want to make lots of different colours for more fun for your kiddos
3. put the trays in the freezer and allow to freeze completely
4. when frozen, pop them out into a bowl and bring them outside for stacking!
