This is a simple and fun experiment project for kids of multiple ages. I filled 2 square containers up with water and placed int he freeze overnight.
Then just collected different materials for Jake and Cate to explore with. You can use whatever you want. Listed below are what we used.
Spray bottles with vinegar
(all the materials can be bought at the Dollar Tree and are very inexpensive)
First the kids poured kool-aid and baking soda on the ice to see if it would bubble and fizz. It did. Then they mixed colors and explored. Poured salt in the block and Jake thought that was neat cause it held the color more on the ice.
After they explored a little I gave them paint brushes and they painted their ice and explored some more. I love how simple this project is and the kids sat still for over a hour doing this.
Great way to have fun on a hot day, along with enjoying science and art play.
We love to do all kinds of fun hands on play with Kool-Aid.
