Ice Mobiles

The kids and I took advantage of the cold weather and made ice mobiles. They were so easy and so fun to check out when we woke up in the morning. We just took small plastic containers (the more flexible the better) and put a small amount of water in the bottom. It's a great measuring activity as well! You cut a length of twine and lay it over the containers. Push the twine into each container so that it dips into the surface of each one.
Briar and I put leaves on the surface of the water so that it would hold the twine in. Olivia preferred to have hers clear....Both were beautiful!
It's definitely a project we'll do again!

They are so cool, Jackie! I'd love to try these :) Temps are supposed to drop again and snow is forecasted for Tuesday, so we'll have our chance!
