Colored Ice Cubes

Ice cubes will melt fairly quickly in a warm bath, but they can still be a choking hazard for little ones. Please supervise carefully.

  • Ice cube tray
  • Water
  • Food coloring


  1. Make colored ice cubes by adding a drop of food coloring to the water in each section of an ice cube tray.
  2. Freeze.
  3. Add a bowl of different-colored ice cubes to the bath for some bathtime fun.
