Hanging Ice Ornaments – Steve MacDonald, Youth Director Shawnessy YMCA
Find a handful of plastic containers (hummus, sour cream containers etc) and fill about half way with water.
Add a little food coloring.
Search for a backyard nature collection: pine cones, fun shaped rocks, or maybe a nice healthy leaf from an indoor plant. Next, place your nature items in the containers half filled with water.
Submerge the end of a long piece of strong string or twine in each container. You can either place them in your freezer, or outside if it is cold enough!
When your natural artifact is frozen, carefully take the ice out of the container, and hang your ice ornament outside: from the porch, from a tree, wherever you like.
