What you need: Ice block( take empty milk carton or other carton and fill with water and freeze), kosher salt( other salt may work), food coloring, tray or pan).
What to do: Take the ice block out of the milk carton and place on a pan. Then pour salt on top and add food coloring. Last, wait to see the color seep through the ice.
What we ended up with in picture above.
My son was so excited to touch the ice and salt.
Now to add color.
And more color, add as many as you want.
His face, love it. He was really into this.
I was hoping for more color to seep through but it didn't. Hope to try our other block out soon and see if it comes out any different.
My toddler getting his hand in there:-)
