What you will need for your coloured ice cubes

 
  • Cold water for the ice cube strays
  • Ice cube tray/trays
  • Different food colouring colours
  • Freezer
  • Bowl or plastic container
  • Additional water


To make your coloured ice cubes


1. Fill the ice cube tray/trays with water.
 
2. Add a few drops of food colouring to the water, using a different colour for each segment of the tray.

3. Put the ice cube tray/trays into the freezer to freeze the coloured water.

4. Once the coloured ice cubes have frozen, pop them out and tip them into a big bowl or plastic container to play with outside, or tip them straight into the bath or onto your little one's highchair tray.

You can also fill up the plastic container or bowl with more water and watch as the cubes begin to dissolve.
