Continuing with my weekly boredom busters, here's something my kids have been enjoying this week: freezing their toys in blocks of ice then chipping them free.
So simple it's brilliant. Little cars, pennies, toy dinosaurs, whatever is laying around (though I drew the line at the parakeet) they stick it in a tub of water overnight then have fun excavating it from the ice with a hammer and "chisel" (otherwise known as a screwdriver) the next day.
Lots of fun for my little archaeologists on a hot summer afternoon.
