Busy Kids Week
Cool Color Fun
Exploring with colored ice!
It's such a simple idea & is SO fun!!
One evening, we let our kids mix up some colored water & pour it into ice cube trays. Then we let them freeze overnight.
It was a GREAT opportunity to teach them about what PRIMARY COLORS are.
Then the next day, (when we happened to have some extra kids over) we got out containers of regular water & divided up the colored cubes.
I had the children pick 2 colors & tell me what they thought would happen when they mixed them(forming a hypothesis).
Then we talked about
This activitity kept the kiddos active for about an hour. They eventually grabbed some of our bath toys & took them "swimming" in their containers.
like the good ol' imagination!!
What I really love about this activity is that it's good for rainy days, hot days (like today - 101* - hot hot hot), or wintery days when we've got a case of cabin fever!
Okay, now go get BUSY with your kids!!!
