Independence Day Cool Off

This was a fun way to cool off at the end of a hot day and celebrate the holiday.

Step 1: Throw dollar store fashion beads in patriotic colors into the tub.  Suggestion: Have enough for each child to have a full set.

Step 2: Add water and a touch of glitter.  We used gold but silver is nice, too.

Step 3: Add red and blue ice stars made with water and food coloring in ice molds also purchased from the dollar store.  Note: The red really faded when frozen, interesting.

Step 4: Add children, quickly.  The ice melts pretty fast.

Step 5: Drain the slightly purple water and retrieve the fashion beads for wearing.

Result: Clean, happy kids!
