RAINBOW SNOW ACTIVITY
- Ice tray
- Food coloring (rainbow colors)
- Straw or spoon
STEP 1. Place a drop of food coloring into each section of the ice cube tray. We went in order of the rainbow colors for this project.
STEP 2. Pour water into each section. Do not overfill (or colors may run into the other sections.)
STEP 3. Stir each section with the straw to make sure the food coloring is mixed well with the water.
STEP 4. Freeze the ice cube tray until all ice is frozen completely.
STEP 5. When ready for use, place the colored ice onto a tray of snow.
STEP 6. Make rainbows in the snow by moving the ice around with a spoon. Watch the color of the snow change as the ice cubes melt!
