A perfect summer activity – we found this MAGIC and TREASURE ICE activity and couldn’t wait to try it for ourselves!

To make Magic and Treasure Ice, you will need:

  • Baking Soda
  • Water
  • Ice Trays for freezing
  • Food coloring
  • Vinegar
  • Optional – small treasures or toys to make magic treasure ice

Making the ice itself is easy:  in your container, mix one part baking soda with one part water, and stir until the baking soda is dissolved.  Add a few drops of food coloring, and optional small treasures and toys in the mixture.  Freeze for four or more hours, and that’s it!


Then, you can pour vinegar on the ice to make it ERUPT


If you’ve hidden small toys in the larger blocks of ice, it’ll take some effort from the kids to dissolve the ice to discover the prizes.


Hours of summer fun! We first saw the post from here.
