To get started, grab a few inexpensive ice trays.
In each open space, place a small plastic bug, amphibian, or reptile.
Add water and freeze them overnight. You can involve your kids in this part of the process, putting the bugs and critters in place, or even pouring water!
If you want to really want to think big, you can get a shoebox size plastic container and fill it full of animals.
The biggest hit is always the dinosaurs! There’s always something fun about digging the dinos out of ice…but we’ll get to that in a minute!
After freezing all of these goodies, the next day will be filled with lots of fun!
You can have the kids drop the “ice cubes” in glasses of water…melt them on hot pavement or even melt them in their hands!
However, the large block of ice will call for a hammer and a screwdriver. Let the kids dig for the dinos and get them out however they can.

Grab some lumber crayons and let the kids draw on a piece of wood. You can find leftover pieces from an old project or get some from a local hardware store.
