An easy to do experiment that turns water into instant ice
Take a bottle of water and put it in the freezer for two hours. After two hours you take it out and carefully pour it into a glass. If you add an ice cube, it will immediately turn into ice. Don't you believe it? Just watch the video below, and discover which Bible stories you can use this experiment for...

Explanation of the themes
Pharaoh in Egypt
Pharaoh does not want to let the people go and in the Bible we read that God hardens Pharaoh's heart. By adding an ice cube to the ice-cold water, the glass freezes and Pharaoh's heart is hardened.
The mustard seed
Jesus tells us that our faith/confidence need only be as small as a mustard seed. Out of it, great things can come. By adding a small ice cube to the ice-cold water, the whole glass freezes. That is the effect of the mustard seed.
Tell the story of Adam and Eve and how their act of disobedience caused the whole of creation to be affected by sin. Put another ice cube in the glass.
The storm on the lake
There is a raging storm. The disciples are afraid they will sink and drown, but Jesus calms the storm. He turns the raging water into a safe place, just as this water turns into ice.
Jesus walking on the water
The same image as with the storm on the lake. As the Son of God, Jesus is in control of the elements and can stand on the water.
Growing in our faith
Here you pour the water over the ice cube. A tower of ice grows. In the same way we may grow in our faith if we feed ourselves with the Living Water
Jesus as our foundation
Jesus is the ice cube. We may build on Him. By trusting in Him and coming back to Him every time, we build on Him. He is our foundation.
These are just tips to get started and work it out for yourself!
