|There are many ways to make colored ice cubes. We added food coloring to water. I filled the hearts with water & Ethan picked different colors for each heart. He added the food coloring too.|
|Once they were frozen, we added them to our kitchen sink water. Why is our water black? Because Ethan asked to add food coloring to it & 3 colors mixed together makes black. :0)|
|Both sides of our sink were filled with water. One side was the warm side & the other (with the colored ice cubes) was the cold side.|
|Our first time playing with any "new" toy, I usually just watch Ethan & see how he plays with it. He was really enjoying putting his hands back & forth between the cold water & the warm water.|
|I actually like how the colored hearts seem to pop against the dark water.|
We have done this several times with different shaped ice cubes, but I can't WAIT for summer. This will be much more fun to play in a Tupperware bin outdoors when it is hot outside & we can be REALLY messy! Who knows what kind of games we will come up with!!!
