It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, coloured ice is always a hit with kids. But in summertime, a water bin filled with coloured ice cubes is just the best!
It’s perfect for keeping the kids cool and refreshed on a hot, summer day!
With warm weather on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about fun summer activities to keep your kids cool and having fun in the backyard! One of our favourite ways to pass a warm summer morning is to add a big batch of coloured ice cubes to a bin of cold water. It keeps everyone cool, and it’s so much fun to scoop, pour, mix and stir while the ice cubes slowly release their colour into the water.
For our coloured ice activity, we used:
- ice cube trays and small plastic cups and containers
- cold water
- food colouring
- storage container or water table ( a large salad or trifle bowl works well too)
- bowls and cups
- various kitchen instruments: scoops, funnels, tongs, spoons, basters, ladles, sieves, etc.
Prepare ahead of time for your ice play activity:
It’s best to start freezing your ice several days in advance so you’ll have lots on hand for your activity.
