Cut flower, petal or leaf shapes out of felt, card or tissue paper - fold in half to snip a little hole in the middle and thread them onto a shoelace, drinking straw, pipe cleaner or pencil to make flowers. Put them on a cup to make a lovely bunch of summer flowers.
Large plastic bowl or tub (if you want to make it on a smaller scale you can use yoghurt pots).
Little toys, sea shells, etc to freeze
Tools to use to melt the ice with water (spray bottle, medicine droppers, turkey baster, measuring cups, watering can)
Food coloring (optional) – a little bit will make the ice cool blue!
This activity takes about a day or two to plan. Fill your bowl ¼ full and drop in a few toys (one or 2 drops of food colouring) and freeze. Repeat this process until the bowl is full.
When it's frozen get the ice out of the bowl by turning it over and running a little bit of warm water on it. Then place the block of ice either on the ground or a table and let your child have fun touching the ice and making it melt with warm water.
