Ice Art

Fun Ice Art to make when it’s cold outside:

Take a round metal pie pan outdoors and fill it with water. Add leaves, seeds, twigs, ‘pretty’ litter, small stones. Get a piece of twine or strong string, make a loop out of it by holding the two ends together. Add this loop of string so that the ends of the string are in the water but the actual loop stays dry, hanging off the side of the pan.

Leave overnight. The next morning bring the by-now frozen pie pan inside and run some warm water onto the bottom. Out from the pan should slide your ice art! You can use the loop to hang it onto a branch where you can watch the sun shine through it.
