Colored Ice Balls

The holidays have been keeping me super busy and today decided to take a {gasps*} extra non-planned day off and experiment.  If there is one thing that I take seriously in personal parenting, its the teaching and learning of how things work and making it fun! We have been getting some really really cold weather in the negatives, so I decided to give the "colored balls" a go! It was super easy, affordable and Caleb loved it. 

 All you have to do to make these yourself is:
purchase a bag of balloons and some food coloring. Put 5-6 drops food coloring in each balloon and fill them with water {like a water balloon}, tie them off and then place them in a bin, box, bag {whatever really} and then wait for a really cold freezing night and leave them outside overnight. The next day you should have frozen balloons, take some scissors and peel of the balloon latex and expose the colorful frozen water circles! Colorful and fun!

  1. Wow! As cold as it is here (SW Idaho), this would be a great deal of fun for the kids- we wouldn't even have to leave 'em out overnight, as it hasn't been getting above freezing during the day. Thanks, this is a lovely and fun idea!

    Wіth havin so much written content do you evег run into any іssueѕ of plagοrism or coρyright violаtion?

    My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd dеfinitelу аppreciate іt.
