This winter has brought very mild weather and has given me a very muddy backyard. Obviously, I don't like sending kids outside to play in the mud so I've been trying to come up with activities to keep them busy on the deck (where there's no mud!). I first saw this idea on one of my favourite blogs, Meet the Dubiens, and thought that the kids would love playing with these.
I decided to give the kids a bit of variety and used a muffin tin and silicone flower muffin molds to make the ice.
I filled each muffin tin with water and then individually added food colouring, mixed it with a small spoon, and let them freeze in the freezer. Easy.
What crafts or kids activities have you been working on? I'd love to hear about them!
