Craft Time...

So since today marks day 842 of 90+ degree weather this year for Indiana, I thought it would be appropriate to post this super easy and fun craft.

Okay.  It's only been 30+ degrees of 90+ degree weather, but still that's a lot.
My bloggy pals in Kansas have been saying that they are experiencing day 52 of 90+ degree weather!

Fill ice cube trays with water and put water colors in each one until you reach the desired color (you can also use food coloring, but I went this route to prevent stained hands and clothing)...
 Freeze and throw in a bowl...
 "Paint" with the ice cubes on paper...

I just heard on the radio that the high for today is 100.  It could become the hottest day in September ever on record for Indiana.

The guys are chopping silage today...in this heat.

Brad will be standing between two hot tractors.  No room for a breeze either because he will be surrounded by cornfields and a tool shed.  We may have to do a little experiment and see what the temp is where he is working.

Or maybe I will just pack up the supplies for this craft and have them "paint" away! ;0)  What do ya think?

We have a super busy, but uber exciting weekend coming up!

Pictures of chopping and our uber exciting weekend coming soon!

Have a good one!!!


  1. Found you from Weekend Wander! Love this idea, never heard of it before. Can imagine how fun this is on those hot humid days. We are having one today in MN, Sunday the high is only going to be 65! Crazy! Stay cool, fall is almost here!

  2. Great idea! I have pictures of ice cubes colored with food coloring, and then we practiced color mixing, and I've been meaning to post those!!!
