Very messy but fun!! Lulu & I had food coloring under our finger nails for a while. Building with the ice cubes didn't work so well but Lulu had fun just playing with the cubes and when we were done we threw them outside. The next day it had snowed again so while I shoveled the driveway Lulu hunted for "Gems" in the snow. It got me thinking that instead of trying to build with the cubes they would make great eyes & mouth for a snow man. Lulu would love using them as decoration for a snow princess. So next time it snows we are going to try this again. Another fun snowy day activity is the squirt bottle filled with colored water. Lulu makes painting in the snow. This keeps her busy while I shovel.
