When the men came back it was time for fun with mommy. While I was on my Pinterest yesterday I found some fun looking science stuff that would also help Liam with his Fine Motor skills. You know me, I love to kill 2 birds with 1 stone. (thank goodness LJ is just learning to read, he HATES that metaphor, he really thinks it means to "kill") So anyway, I got this cool idea from another momma over at The Artful Parent.
Liam really enjoyed it. (NOTE: kiddos hand will get messy, Liam's are still green, as is his face from trying to eat the ice.)
Pictures say it best, so here goes:
getting started. I made ice cubes in different sized bowls. Then you will need salt and different colors of water.
salting the ice
let the salt sit and start to melt the ice, while you make your colored water
momma (the big kid) had to try it to show Liam
Liam trying it out
the more the salt works, the better it will look
The finished product
Liam loved this project. He LOVES salt, so he had fun eating the salty ice when he was done. Hope your kiddos enjoy it too.
