Cool Off with Ice Cube Games

Freeze some colorful ice cubes and cool off on a hot summer day.

What You Need

  • Bathing suits or clothes that can get wet
  • Blindfold (optional)
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Ice cubes – more fun if made with food coloring!
  • Ice cube trays
  • Plastic containers, big enough to put your feet in, one per player
  • Towels

What You Do

  1. Make lots of ice cubes
    It’s more fun if you make the ice cubes colorful by adding some food coloring.
  2. Have a race for how quickly you can melt an ice cube
    Challenge people to melt the ice cubes as fast as you can.

  3. See if you can pick up ice cubes with your feet
    Fill a bucket with water and lots of ice cubes. Take turns removing cubes from the bucket using only your feet. Make it more challenging by putting on a blind fold.

  4. If you have ice cubes left…
    Go on an Ice Cube Treasure Hunt and make ice sculptures. (right link?)
