Hide the treasures deep under the ice. Then grab a bowl or a tray to to sort the things you find. I gave Holly a tray to sort the treasures and sprinkled some glitter and sequins on top of the ice to act as a treasure decoy!
When the ice melted, Holly suggested that we add a little more water, put the treasures back in the water, and let the Barbies go for an icy swim. I thought that would be a great idea, so I added just one drop of blue food coloring to give the water a little more of an ocean look and the mermaid Barbies had a great time. The melted ice water was really chilly and kept us cool outside for about two hours!
