It's an "ice treasure chest"... simply take some small plastic toys and freeze them in a Tupperware container. I colored the water bluish-green and it froze solid in about 12 hours. Take outside and let the kids figure out how to melt it as fast as possible to get to their toys!
Tyson and Miles loved it. I'm sure this won't be the first time we make ice treasure chests this summer! Maybe I will even hit up the dollar store for some new toys to freeze.
