How to make your ice world

2. Once frozen, tip the ice cubes and ice blocks into the roasting tray, low sided dish or plastic container.

3. Add your choice of Artic and/or Antarctic creatures or fish and other sea creatures onto the ice.

4. Add some water to create the sea. You can add a few drops of blue food colouring too for more effect.

5. Put the tray outside in the sun and watch as the ice begins to melt and your ice world changes shape.
