Materials Needed:
Water colors or food coloring
Picture 002
I froze water in one of my mixing bowls. I wanted my iceberg to be large.

The kids used spoonfuls of salt to coat the ice

They then used eye droppers to drop color onto the ice and watch it flow through little caverns the salt created

The colors were beautiful and it was fun to see new “veins” created to drop more color though.

You can’t see it well in the picture but ice was going down into the center of the ice it was very cool

The colors blended but not completely together at the bottom to create a rainbow
