Ice Play

on August 13, 2012

Last night a storm hit our area and brought an unseasonable cool front with it. This is Texas, so by “cool front” it means going from 100+ to the 90s.

I decided to take advantage of the probable lovely morning we would have today and got some things ready. I filled two ice cube trays with water and put a drop of food coloring in each one. I also filled a few cups with colored water and put a small plastic lizard or dinosaur in them. I figured that if it was still rainy or too hot, we could always take a bath with colored ice cubes.

This morning was perfect for some ice play. It was warm but not the blazing hot that usually hits Texas in August. We brought out our ice cubes, a blanket, a real mallet for K, and a play hammer for E. K enjoyed finding the things hidden in the cubes. E loved copying big brother and playing with the small cubes.

E has a great time copying big brother. K just wanted to find out what was in the big cubes.

This went on until all the cubes were completely crushed and we had a wet, colorful sidewalk.
