Ice Cube Sailboats and Ice Treasure Hunt

I thought I was really behind in the blog, but I'm not.  I guess we just haven't done much.  Well we did do sun printing, but I don't have an after picture yet.  So I'll share today's activity.  We did Ice Cube Sailboats and an Ice Treasure Hunt.

Ice Cube Sail Boats
*Ice Cube Tray
*Food Coloring
*Tooth Picks
*Squares of Paper
*Wax Paper

Fill the ice cube tray with water and add drops of of food coloring.  I did about 3 drops of each color and then mixed colors per box instructions.

I then covered the tray with wax paper (though my husband says I should have used seran wrap) and poked toothpicks through.

Add paper squares to your tooth picks.  (I used 2x2 inch squares of construction paper)

Set Sail!
I love the swirls that it made in the water.

Ice Cube Treasure Hunt
*Container to freeze water in
*Toys to freeze
*Ways to melt the water

I gave Brock a squirt gun, water bottle and a medicine dropper

When I froze the water, I did it in layers.  I filled my container up about 1/3 of the way and inserted some toys, then froze it and then added another 1/3 and added more toys and so on.

This little guy came to visit.  There were two of them.  I can't believe how many toads we have this year.

Brock finally threw the ice block in the pool and let the water melt it.  Took the easy way out : )

I might not be around as much this week.  Mark has the week off and we've got some family stuff planned.  But when I get back, I'll probably have a huge post!
