Summer Jar- day 2 (ice treasures)

Today we excavated treasures in ice.  Yesterday I froze water in layers in plastic storage containers.  Some layers we added food coloring as we placed the little toys inside.  My daughter had so much fun, she asked to do it again.  I just started the first layer and added coins.  Coins being thin and small I’m going to try doing several layers.  They used eye droppers with warm water, plastic knives, and my daughter’s favorite, a pizza cutter.  The downfalls for doing this today is, that it’s raining outside and chilly.  So, we had to do it inside.  Second, my girl has a broken arm, so she has a bag on it and having to dig with just one arm.  But nothing stops her.
