Summer is here and we have been trying to keep cool, so I have been thinking about some artsy ice activities to make with my daughter. We did many ice activities last year and one in particular was Colorful Ice Sculptures in which we used water balloons that we froze. Another idea was Painting With Ice Cubes to create gorgeous colorful Art. Now in my freezer I have a bunch of ice filled balloons and paint ice cubes ready to go. I asked my daughter if she wanted to create more sculptures with ice balloon spheres, but instead she played with one of the ice balls like a ball kicking and rolling it around. Here are the pictures to show the fun.
To create Ice Spheres you need:
Balloons of all sizes
Fill the balloons with water and freeze. Simply peel the balloon away when frozen and have fun!
Very cold on your feet, but icy fun for a HOT day!

Hope these ideas will help you to keep cool in the Summer Heat!
