Items included in your kit: 4 penguin erasers and salt.
Items you will need from home: small bowl or tupperware container, water, spoon or dropper (from previous kits) and food coloring. ** NOTE** Adults will need to freeze the penguins in water in the small container, and have it ready on a plate or cookie sheet.

Week Seven-Save the Penguins
**If you have not put the penguins in a bowl of water to freeze, please do that now and you can do the experiment later.**
Once the ice is ready with the penguins trapped inside, remove from the bowl if possible and place it upside down on a cookie tray. In two small bowls, add a good amount of food coloring to warm water. Put salt on a plate or in a bowl. Have your child slowly add the warm water onto the ice (you can use a spoon or a dropper) then add some salt where the water was dropped. Watch how the salt will begin to melt the ice. Continue the process until the penguins have been freed!
