On sunny days, try these easy ice crayons naturally coloured with fruit and vegetables!
What you'll need:
Jug of water
Ice cube trays - long ones are best!
Fruit and veggies for colouring - carrots, beetroots and blueberries work well!
1. Make your food colourings first. Boil each of the fruits or veggies you are using in a small amount of water until the water becomes coloured.
2. Once cool, strain the coloured liquids and pour into your ice trays, then carefully put into the freezer. (Grown-ups can use the leftover fruit and veg for cooking!)
3. After a few hours, your ice crayons will be set and ready to use! Take them outside to a pavement or a big piece of card and see what you can draw!
