Beautiful ice bowl.

If you are looking for some cold weather fun, you can try this fun activity. Last night my kids filled a bunch of balloons with water and left them in the front yard to freeze overnight.

Fill your balloons and leave them out to freeze.

It’s not cold enough yet for them to freeze all the way through, but we got some really interesting bowls and domes.

As it gets colder, the balloons will probably freeze all the way through overnight. So you may have to catch the weather just right to get these beauties.
