summer activity

Lately I've been dragging my son all over the South Bay running random errands. With one week left of summer, I decided I should probably do something fun with Blee at home. I poured over my Pinterest pins. After a few minutes, I found the perfect summer activity here. I changed it up a little so Blee could play with it outside instead of in the tub.

Step : Pour water in the ice cube trays and add food coloring.


Step 2 : Using clothespins, hold toothpicks in place.


Step 3 : Pour water in a baking sheet, and add blue food coloring.

Step 4 : Freeze


Step 5 : Create sailboats with the ice cubes w/toothpicks by inserting a piece of paper for the mast.







I think Blee enjoyed mixing the colors and gliding the sailboats across the ice. He was over with it in about 5 minutes though...good thing it didn't take too much effort to make this!
