  • water
  • small beads or toys
  • a freezer
  • scissors

  1. Drop a few colorful beads(beach animal shaped ones are good) or small toys into a balloon.
  2. Fill the balloon with water and put in the freezer overnight. (You could also used colored water)
  3. Cut the balloon and take out the ice ball. The students can see something inside.
  4. Let them play with it on a tray or put in the wadding pool.
  5. As the the ice melts, the beads come out.
  6. You could give them as party favors and let kids take home the toys inside.
