Summer Activity- Ice Block full of toys

A great idea for a hot summer day! Take a large plastic bowl and fill with small toys and water. Let freeze overnight and dump out the block of ice on your driveway or porch. You can let those little curious fingers chisel the ice with their plastic tools to search for their treasures. Another idea would be to let the children poor water over the ice to see the ice become smooth and glossy.
