Ice Globes

5 Jan

You have got to try this one.



Put 5 drops of food coloring into a balloon and fill it up with water.  Tie it up, toss it outside and let mother nature take her course.  In a couple days they will be frozen enough to peel off the ballon outside.  You will be left with a shimmering and colorful ice globe.



Note:  They take longer to freeze completely through than you would think.  Be patient and it will all work out.  I was impatient with one batch of mine and they ended up having a hollowed out look and we put candles inside, but I would rather they be frozen throughout.

Be aware, You’ll want to make about a zillion of these, it’s kind of addicting.



Sheet Coloring Craft

11 Oct

I love doing crafts with Aleah when it is just the two of us hanging out.  I think I saw this idea on pintrest and was excited to give it a try.

We filled up two squirt bottles with water and food coloring and started squirting away.  We used, purple, green, pink, yellow, red and blue.

Doesn’t she look like a little artist?

Isn’t that more fun than a boring white sheet?
