This experiment was a leftover from the last week, and I saw it on many blogs before. We froze 12 cubes of ice with blue, green, yellow and red food coloring added to the water. Then we put ice cubes into plastic food jars and added some hot water to help it melt faster. Anna predicted (correctly in most cases) what color we are going to get and mixed colors some more once experiment was done. She enjoys color mixing while painting a lot more than actual painting. The best part of this experiment, apparently, was freeing her beads that we froze with water and poking the ice to make it melt faster. I realized pretty quickly that I need some surface protection before everything is covered in colored water. I found out from previous experiments that those stains don’t come off easily :)
