Fun with Ice

Ice + Kids = A Freezing Mess    I love it!
Fill water balloons and freeze overnight.  Of course, you could use any container to fill and freeze.

Dump Ice Cream Salt on ice and watch it fizzle and slowly melt.

We had tons of syringes from when the kids are sick that we get with their medicine.  We filled them with water and food coloring.

Makes pretty sculptures.

My daughter was really working her fine motor skills while pretending at the same time.  "The ice needs more medicine."

You really should try this!


  1. Couldn't you also use the syrup that goes on snowcones instead of the food coloring and then the kids could eat it as a treat afterwards? Thanks for the idea, I too am a Christian mom and I am always looking for fun, easy ideas to do with my 3 y/o son.

    1. Ooh...great idea! I'll try that next time!

  2. Looks like a lot of fun!
    Just found your blog!!! Thank you for sharing your awesome ideas!
