Outdoor winter art

Build with ice

The next time the forecast calls for temps below freezing get ready for some ice play as featured on The Artful Parent.

On a chilly night, freeze water in ice cube trays, muffin tins, Jell-O molds, and old yogurt containers in order to create building blocks blocks in various shapes. You can do it in your freezer or experiment with liquids and solids by leaving them outside overnight. If you add a drop of food coloring, the next day you will have colorful ice blocks to create your own outdoor ice sculptures. Is it still cold enough to "glue" the pieces together by dribbling water on them to freeze into place?
