Boy, it’s hot! The girls seem irritated that I’m so concerned with keeping them from getting sunburn and heatstroke and bored with sitting in the air conditioning, so I thought this back patio activity might help alleviate the boredom.
1. Fill trays with water.
2. Mix food coloring in your ice cube tray to desired colors. I only had gel food coloring, so I put a small amount on the toothpick and mixed it.
3. Freeze and save for a hot day.
Fresh or dried flowers
1. Fill tray with water.
2. Press flower heads into the water, submerging completely. Make sure these flowers are non-toxic, just in case.
3. Freeze. These will be fun for your little one to play with later! Obviously you don’t have to use flowers, I just used what we had from Mother’s day.
