I saw this idea on a blog a few months ago but forget where.
Anyways, we collected some stuff from our front yard (leaves, sticks, flowers, stones) then put them in a margarine container n filled it with water. We then put it in the freezer and waited for it to freeze [we had to check the progress every 15 minutes].
The next day I put it on a baking sheet for Yusuf to play with. He slid it around, played hockey with it [as you can see in the bottom pic, hes scoring], we put salt on it n watched it melt and then put it back in the freezer since it was time for bed. Well probably take it out again tomorrow.
