Outdoor ice baubles

I picked my son up from his kindergarten today and these were hanging on the trees outside — what a ‘cool’ (get it?) idea! Yesterday, the children had chosen leaves and set them on plates covered in water with a loop of string hanging over the edge.  Overnight the ice had frozen into these beautiful baubles to hang on the tree. So I think I have found something positive to come out of the freezing temperatures we’re having here!

How clever! So simple, and yet I’ve never done this project before.
I really don’t enjoy this cold weather either…

how beautiful ! Wish we could see things like this more often, as it may make winter a bit more bearable.

Hats off to the art teacher who dream’t that one up, they are really beautiful, cost nothing and won’t damage the planet. I love it.

Hi! I was so happy to see this idea. We did it and have been enjoying our ice baubles for several weeks now. Thanks so much for the great idea! I wish we had tried Esther’s idea above to add cranberries. We’ll try that next time.
