Science Lesson: I told my son that we were going to turn liquid into a solid. Together we filled a Ziploc bag with water and a touch of blue food coloring. I made an alphabet chart for him to place his letters on as he got them out of the ice. I set the bag in a bowl outside for a few hours.
I was shocked to see that the water had not yet frozen, though the temperature was about 5 degrees! My husband guessed it was because the sun was beating on it, but I didn’t agree. We let it sit overnight, and the next morning, the weirdest thing happened. The water hardly froze at all. There was a frail looking ice ball with the letters inside. He absolutely loved this activity and loved watching the snow and ice melt with the warm squirt bottle.
