Treasure Hunting

Thanks to Paula's Blog, I found a fun activity for us to do in this heat of summer.
100 degrees and 99% humidity! So I took about $5 in change, and froze in different layers in a brownie pan. Then I let the kids loose on it with toothbrushes, and water bottles. They had a blast. So much so, that we did it again the next day. This time, I out-smarted them by putting blue food coloring in the water so it made it harder to see the money. They have had the most fun recycling the money to play in the ice!
