Fun with Ice

We've been enjoying some much needed down time. We're killin' time with fun projects around the house. I froze a bunch of small toys in water for them to dig out.

After awhile, Macen had it with the digging and picked his up and threw to the ground. Maddox then copied, lol. The beads held it together nicely.

And of course, the 2 yr old puts it in his mouth.
 Next we froze a block of water and then added salt and food coloring to it.

They loved it! We'd add salt and once the food coloring completely covered it, we'd scoop it off and added more to help it melt even more. The last one is where the ice had melted and the food coloring fell into the groves on the inside. Pretty cool!
