Sometime last summer, I found icicle Popsicle trays. I got very excited and began to make plans for them! Today I pulled out some Popsicles that I froze using water with food coloring.
I carried them outside and we talked about how icicles form when it is very cold (and that we may not see any in Texas). Then I clipped the icicles to tree branches. They made a colorful mobile and the sun shone beautifully through the different colors. The preschoolers predicted that the icicles would melt... and they did! It was fun to watch the children giggle as the cold drops landed on their heads. They even stuck out their tongues to try and catch some of the water.
