More Frozen Fun

After our success with snow, I decided to try another ice activity.

I remember seeing this one pinterest when I was pregnant with my oldest son and thinking I'd try it someday.  Apparently that day is today! 

I filled a plastic shoe box half full of water and dropped some toys in.  I put it in the freezer and when it was solid, I added more toys and more water.  As an after thought I added a few drops of food coloring (bad idea, by the way).

When we were ready for the activity it was completely solid.

I asked my son if he wanted to free the little sea creatures and he took to the task with gusto.
 He pounded and sprayed for a decent amount of time before declaring it was 'too hard' and it was mommy's turn.

Mommy had another idea...
 Luckily, the fun didn't stop there.  We continued having fun sparing, tossing and picking up the toys and pieces of ice.

Compared to the snow, it was probably less of a hit, but still a fun way to talk about ice, melting, and physical changes in materials.  Also, not a bad way to stay cool on a hot summer day!
