Easy Water Activities for Kids


Slow Melt

"Slow Melt" is an easy water activity where you can watch an ice cube practically saying "I'm m-e-l-t-i-n-g!" Kids who do this easy activity can watch time stand still as an ice cube melts in slow motion.

What You'll Need:

  • Drinking glass
  • Vegetable oil
  • Ice cube

How to Do Slow Melt:

Fill a drinking glass with vegetable oil. Now drop an ice cube into the oil.

As the ice melts, you will be able to see the droplets form and fall in slow motion. The droplets fall this way because water has a higher density than oil.
