6 Indoor Boredom Busters



ACTIVITY #6: Ice Block Designs


• Empty one-gallon cardboard milk containers

• Coarse salt

• Food coloring

• Eye dropper

• Large trays or baking pans with sides

• Several newspapers

What to Do:

Fill the empty milk containers with water and freeze until solid. Remove from the freezer and tear away the cardboard container so that you're left with a block of ice. Line the trays with newspaper and place the ice blocks inside them. Have the children sprinkle the salt on the block and drip food coloring on top of it. You'll see tunnels of color created as the salt melts through the ice!
