Ice and Salt Free Play
With record temperatures today (113*) playing with ice is a great way to stay cool. I like this activity because it is:
3. all materials on hand
4. easy clean up, can even be done
First sprinkle salt on a big-o-block-o ice. Then squirt colored water on top.
Watch the ice and salt do its magic.
Sister played in Mt. Laundry.
If I had a better camera, you could see the intricate details of this ice sculpture.
When we do this project again, we'll have a block of ice without salt and compare the melting rates.
But for today, it was very fun. And easy.
The below picture is taken from the top; the salt melted a hole through to the bottom.
And what's not to love about undies as a necklace?! :)
