Dean is really into rainbows so I thought it would be fun to make each ice cube a different color. :) Each child picked a color to play with once they were frozen. (We've got a full house - I have 4 kids, my roommate has 2 and my PCA has 3.)
I filled each cup with water and put items of various materials, densities and weights in each.
-foam shapes and letters
-rubber counting vehicles
-beads of all colors, shapes, and sizes
-tissue paper squares
-spare game pieces
-Mardi Gras beaded necklaces
I added a drop of peppermint essential oil to each cup before placing in the freezer. You don't NEED it but it smelled so yummy! :)
Dean chose his own pumpkin from the patch when we were at the Apple Orchard last week. He's named it and carries it around with him everywhere - that's why he has decorated it with the slime.
Sophia abandoned the monster theme in exchange for the unicorns and horses!
