Since we had so much fun with our earlier ice investigation, I decided this week to make some ice boats for the kiddie pool this week.
I found a few small yogurt containers in the recycling box and filled them partially with water and a couple drops of food coloring. Then I stuck a straw in it to be a mast. To keep the mast from floating in the water or becoming crooked I used a little bit of tape to hold the straw in place. Then I popped them in the freezer.
The next day I cut sails from construction paper and cut 2 small slits in each sail to slip the straw mast through.
They were super excited when they saw the ice boats.
They didn’t last long (It was a pretty hot day out!), but they had fun swirling the boats around and feeling the colder water in the boat’s path.
Have a boatiful weekend!
