Summer has hit us with full force! I did the simplest thing for the kids the other day and it was a huge hit, kept them entertained for a long time, and cooled them down.
(Granted wearing a polyester, hooded costume in 90+ degree weather is not the best way to deal with the summer heat...)
Nothing more than some large pieces of ice made with my plastic "leftover containers." Throw in some regular ice cubes for good measure and we built towers galore! My freezer will serve a new purpose this summer!
