Why We Like It

This is great for a hot summer day, and takes very little effort to put together!

Materials
  • Bits of fruits and/or veggies (can be frozen for more fun!)

  • Water in a bucket or a pool

How to Make It

Put fruit/veggie pieces in the water bucket or pool. Some will float and some will sink, but that's part of the fun!
