Things for Kiddos Thursday - Winter Sun Catcher

I found this cool winter craft in Disney's Everyday Fun magazine. I loved the idea of coloring and freezing ice with Sweet Angel. She thought it was great! We ran to the freezer every 30 minutes to see how the ice was doing. She was able to see how it froze on top first and was still liquid underneath. We talked about how lakes do that in the winter time and the little fish swim under the ice.

Here is what you need:

food coloring
ice cube tray
round cake pan
small plastic cup

1. Create colorful ice cubes by adding one to three drops of food coloring.

2. Fill the round cake pan two-thirds full of water. Set a plastic cup full of water in the pan to make the whole for the ribbon. Place in the freezer for 1 hour.

3. Put the colorful ice cubes in the pan. Let the whole thing freeze solid.

4. Remove the plastic cup. Flip the sun catcher out of the pan and hang it outside with the ribbon.
