Fun Summer Activities: Ice Play
Ice cube color mixing:
Before the activity, add a few drops of food coloring to water and freeze into ice blocks.
Place each of the color combinations pictured below into some glasses, and watch the magic happen.
What a wonderful way to teach young children the primary and secondary colors!
Place the colored ice blocks into a sealed zip lock bag (this makes this activity work for younger children too).
As the ice melts, talk about what happens to each of the colors.
Tapping away at a huge frozen ice block to find treasure! This is easy to prepare – simply, place some objects in a large tub with water and leave it to freeze for a few hours. Add a collection of play tools (or small, blunt real tools) to get them started. The excavation gets easier as the ice melts.

If you build a perfect sandcastle, a dragon will move in. That is exactly what happens to one lucky boy at the beach.
Is there really a dragon running around on the beach or just an imagination?

Suggested Summer Fun Activity for the Family weather at the park of on your backyard.
Build an obstacle course
Construct an obstacle course with hula-hoops, jump ropes, sticks, stones, hoses, and other materials from around the house. Your kids can take turns completing it-and the person with the fastest time wins a prize!
No campground? No problem! Pitch a tent in the backyard and spend the night underneath the stars. This free summer activity has one major benefit over normal camping: There is a working toilet merely feet away!
Plan a Bike Ride
Encourage your kids to decorate their rides with streamers, stickers, flags, and more-then let them cruise around the neighborhood or park to show off their creation.
When painting outside, there is no need to worry about making a mess.
Just use washable paint and the medium of your choice, whether it is construction paper, cardboard, or blocks. You can also create outdoor artwork with sidewalk chalk.
