  • • A container 
  • • Some plastic or silicone toys 
  • • A toothbrush
  • • Salt 



  • • Place some water and a few of your child’s toys in the container.
  • • Freeze it overnight.
  • • The next day, tell your child that the toys are stuck. Challenge your child to rescue the toys! 
  • • Rub the ice, brush it with the toothbrush, and add some salt to make it melt quicker. 
  • • What else can you do to make the ice melt quicker?
