Bathtub Ice Cubes

Bathtub Ice Cubes
We already use these shaped ice cube trays for making crayons, transferring ice cubes with kitchen utensils, and for Muffin Tin Monday, and now bathtub ice cubes.

Just add food coloring (NOT TOO MUCH), freeze them, and you are ready to go.

B had a great time “seeing what would happen”. He was catching them with a net and all he could talk about for the rest of the night was how they melted and that we should try it again tomorrow.

This is the PERFECT way to experiment with mixing colors because the bath water changes all around them.

Hi AnonymousMix the water with one or two drops first and then put it into the ice cube mold (I put one drop in each ice cube and it was too much). It didn't stain the skin or the tub when we did it, but we didn't stay in too long either.
