Sculptures of Ice Activity

This sculptures of ice activity is a fun way for kids to get creative and cool off at the same time!

What You'll Need:

  • Empty plastic containers or milk cartons
  • Water
  • Food coloring
  • Garbage bags

Fill empty plastic containers or milk cartons with water and add a few drops of food coloring. Freeze overnight. The next day, spread large garbage bags on a picnic table (in the shade!), and put a frozen container on each.


Cut away the containers for your kids, or have them peel the containers off. Now they can sculpt away! Hands and mouths are all it takes to make wild and crazy shapes.

Even the family dog might enjoy cooling off while licking one of these ice sculptures!

No need to wait for the ice cream truck to drive by: The next page shows how to make a cool and tasty treat.
