This year, I created the ice excavation for when my mother-in-law would be babysitting. A few days before she was going to baby sit I froze ocean animals in layers and added food color to two of the layers.
The good news is that they worked on it for an hour. The bad news is that is was 70 degrees which isn't exactly ice excavating weather. You can't win them all.
