Icebergs

This activity will amaze your young child, when toys frozen in ice melt free.

Time

  • 15 to 20 minutes

Materials

  • Empty half-gallon milk carton
  • Hand-sized plastic objects
  • Shallow baking dish

Directions

  1. This puzzling activity can provide interest on and off for up to an hour. Put some small plastic objects into an empty milk carton and fill it 3/4 full with water. Freeze over night.
  2. When you are ready to play, run warm water over the carton to peel it off and place the ice block in a shallow baking dish outside. When melted, the toys will be set free.

Extensions

  • Instead of toys, add some grapes or strawberries before freezing.
  • Put the frozen cube into a wading pool during water play.
