Treasure Ice Cubes

Treasure Ice Cubes: 

Today was day one of our summer experiment.  W drew out make treasure ice cubes.  We spent a good half hour that morning searching the house for objects he thought would be cool frozen.  We made one tray for him and one for baby G.  (We picked larger items for baby G, but please be careful because kids love to put things in their mouth)  After finding a lot of randoms...we filled them with water and put them in the freezer and the waiting game began.  The first hour, W probably checked on his 'treasures' every five minutes.  But finally they were done and we took them outside to watch them melt!

I put a bowl of water out there too so that he could experience them melting faster in the water.  It was fun to see his reaction.  Baby G just wanted to eat the ice cubes and splash in the water until eventually she dumped it all over herself and brother....which just made it more fun.  After the treasure cubes were melted, W didn't want to be done so we took a big bowl of regular cubes outside and had fun playing with them.

W also drew out of the chores, organize kitchen drawers.


After about fifteen minutes and a few storage containers....

 We have some organized kitchen drawers.  I do have one more drawer in my kitchen that we call the junk drawer....but it has its very own stick in the jar....trust me, it needs one.
