crafting with grandma - Summer Fun for Children's Day - Ice Chalk!

This past Sunday was Mother's Day - I hope you all enjoyed celebrating this day with the people you love; my family got together at my house for a wonderful time of family celebration! My personal highlight of the day was time spent with my children and grandchildren!

At any rate, the next "family celebration" is Children's Day - the second Sunday in June, which this year we are celebrating on Father's Day in our family since my son and his family will be in the UP of Michigan for a bike event. But if you are able to celebrate on Children's Day and if you would like to get a "jump start" on making some fun gifts which your grandchildren can enjoy, check this idea I found on Pinterest for Ice Chalk!!!

Follow this link and you'll find seven different recipes for making Ice Chalk - it would be fun to make with your grandchildren, or to surprise them with on Children's Day or throughout the Summer for some cool fun! If you make them, your young grandchildren will especially  enjoy adding baking soda to the recipe and then using vinegar to make their drawings "bubble"!

Have you ever tried this? Do you think it is something you might add to your plans for Summertime fun this Summer? Enjoy!
