ice ice {baby} (painting with ice cubes!)

Does that title date me a little? I hope not.  But oh well if it does. :)
Here's a fun little something for you and your littles...I saw this idea over there at minieco.
Fun cold fun for the hot summer days.
Fill an ice tray with water...don't over fill...you don't want the water to run from one cube to the next. 
I added one drop of food coloring per cube...but I think two drops per cube would have been better.
Once it's frozen...head on outside.  
I taped some paper on some cardboard....and we worked on the grass.
It was fun...and kept his attention.
And it was free...we had everything on hand. My kind of entertainment. 
His hands did get a little stained.  But it was gone within a day or so.  And he's a kid...I think it's a right of passage to have stained hands...
Oh...and I made him work in and OLD bathing suit.  The food coloring will stain. 
Something fun and different.  Easy and cheap.
Have fun!! :)
This is my one and only goal this weekend....I really want to get the squares sewn for our Nothing but Net quilt...so I can trim them...and sew them together.  :) And we can get to our goal!
Have you been over to see OUR PAGE!

I'm so proud of us...I can't wait to see where we end up!

Thank YOU for helping!

I am often inspired by you. We made our ice in a muffin form and stood playmobil guys in the ice. When they froze we slid them around on the bathroom floor and pretended it was a soccer match.
