I always have different colored ice cubes in the freezer. A good friend tipped me off to this super easy bath fun idea. It takes a couple minutes to put a few drops of food coloring into the ice cube tray and you have 12 fast bath toys. They make fun color swirls in the water and can make colored bubbles – what 2yo doesn’t love that? Now, she even likes to help me choose which colors to make, and I get to teach her about colors and how to mix them to make new colors.
Wait – How does this relate to food?
I keep the ice cube tray clean, so I can use the color cubes in food, too! When my daughter insists on oatmeal for lunch, I can throw a purple (or blue, orange, green) ice cube in to make it fun and cool it down quickly so she can eat it instead of whining 🙂
