Last night I filled a large plastic bowl full of water and added some plastic animals to it and stuck it in the freezer so we could have some giant ice cube fun today!
We took a variety of tools for Dad's tool box. I explained how they worked and let the boys pick out which tool they thought would work best for chipping away the ice.
We were able to chip all the ice away and free their little plastic animals. They really enjoyed doing this activity. I have a feeling we will be doing it again sometime.
