Ice Sculptures: Inspiring Creativity in Summer

by Rebecca Eanes

Make Frozen Ice Balls

We had great fun with frozen ice balls. These are frozen water balloons that weren't quite frozen all the way, which conveniently left a hole in the center which was perfect for sculpting a superhero castle.

I gave my sons salt, food coloring, and sprinkles, and they picked the toys they wanted to incorporate. The end result was a beautiful ice sculpture that they got several hours of play out of.

There are many ways to play with ice, including themed bins. Think of everything from Antarctica and toy penguins, to ice excavations where you freeze toys in ice and give your child a rubber mallet. These ice sculptures, however, have been a favorite for my children. I hope yours enjoy this activity as well.

Happy Summer!
