Ways To Save: Make your own Ice Pops with Sid!

Sunday, August 30, 2009 4 Post-It Notes

The weather is still HOT when the school bell rings, so COOL off and turn your kitchen into the next “Super Fab Lab” with Sid the Science Kid and this fun science experiment!
-ice cube trays
-your kid’s favorite fruit!
-heat and moisture safe dishes with sides

1. Put one piece of fruit in each section of the ice cube tray
2. Cover with water and put into freezer
3. Check regularly to observe how long it takes to freeze
4. When frozen, remove and turn the cubes onto the dish. Observe what happens to the water around the      fruit.
5. Brainstorm and discuss ways to get the fruit out of the ice. What can you do?
6. Try some solutions – add warm water, microwave, or just wait.
7. Enjoy the fruit when the ice melts!

    This is a cute experiment. My two year old really likes Sid the Science Kid... he runs screaming through the house in the morning, yelling "Breakfast TIIIIIIIIIME". Funny.
