Ice Cool Skaters

You will need

  • Tinfoil
  • Large lolly stick
  • Felt tip pens
  • Teaspoon
  • Plastic cup filled with a little bit of water


  • Using felt tip pens, draw your character on a lolly stick - remember to leave a gap at the bottom so that it looks like your character is skating
  • Wrap tinfoil securely around the top of the cup of water
  • Use the handle of the teaspoon to pierce a hole in the top of the tinfoil
  • Place your lolly stick into the hole in the foil so that your character is standing upright in the cup
  • Grown-ups, you can now put your ice cool skater into the freezer overnight until the water is frozen solid 
  • Once frozen, remove the ice cool skater from the cup, place it on a flat surface like a baking tray, and watch it dance!

Top Tips

  • Experiment with using different flat surfaces to see what makes the skaters move faster
  • Try racing your ice cool skaters against friends and family - you could design the skaters to look like everyone who's competing in the race!
