ice ice baby

It was really hot here on Saturday so I got out the ice toy thingee I made up last week. It's so easy and the kids loved it.

Put some little plastic toys in an icecream container.
Fill the container with water, put the lid on and put in the freezer.
 
When frozen, pop the block of ice out and give to the kids to play with, either in or out of the water!
The girls loved seeing their toys in the ice and trying to get at them as the block slowly melted- it took ages too which is always good isn't it!

(If you have a dinosaur or an Ice Age fan, I've seen this idea used for birthday parties where the container is filled with little plastic dinosaurs and the kids get to break the block up to get at the dinosaurs!)

And in other news....you might have noticed I've been playing around with adding some pages to my blog - I'm meant to be doing my planning for work tomorrow and as usual am the worst procrastinator ever.  I've added pages for my crafty projects, my tutorials, kids stuff and my mousehouse things I've made for my (very neglected!) Felt Shop.

Thanks for visiting :)

I loved this when you posted it, so much I came back and pinned it once such a thing came into being...
...and then we did it, not too long ago. You'll see. Thank you for posting it.

this reminded me how we used to do this for our dog - mostly with scraps of ham, or left over dinners. He used to love it and it cooled him right down.
