Melting ice with dyed salt (July 2011)

Little Man was up EARLY this Saturday morning so we decided to invite A over, who is ALWAYS up early, to melt ice with dyed salt. I froze 2 things of water (last night) and then put them into 2 tubs, I had salt that I had dyed a couple of months ago, 2 eye droppers, and a bottle of water and then let the kids experiment as they wished while I drank coffee, win-win!

I got this idea from Almost Unschoolers

At the end they started throwing the ice down to break it into little pieces, in all they played for about 30 mins on this.
