I admit it, I am a Pinterest-o-holic. It’s so awesome because I keep finding all these nifty ideas on how to keep my kids entertained. So here is another great one that I found…. The giant ice cube o fun!
It’s a really simple idea, you just take small toys and freeze them in water. You can add pretty much anything like army men, dinosaurs, legos, power rangers, little action figures, etc. I used an empty ice cream bucket (but you could use anything) and added a little food coloring for effect. I put the lid on and let it freeze overnight (hidden behind a box of dino nuggets because I didn’t want the kids to see it) and then I surprised them with it in the morning.
I didn’t have any toy tools, but I just gave them some spoons and let them pick at the ice. Here they are having a good ol time. Even the dog was interested in what was going on. It did begin to seem that maybe it might have been better to make three smaller sized blocks so that they each could have their own, because they were getting in each others way at times, but it all worked out fine. This one was alot of fun. It kept them busy for awhile too. Good times!
