Winter Ice Art

This week we made some winter ice art to hang on the trees in our school garden.

Mrs Stewart saw this fantastic idea on this website:

There are lots of ideas on this site for children and schools to do during the various seasons.

On Tuesday we went into the forest behind our school to collect natural objects such as pines cones, leaves and twigs. This was great fun!

Look what I've found!

When we got back to class we sorted them all out.

On Wednesday we chose some of the things we had collected and put them into a cup and and topped it up with water. We also put in a piece of string as a handle and a bit of glitter for some festive sparkle. We then put them in the freezer.
On Thursday they had become beautiful pieces of winter art which we could display in our garden (until they melt!). We think they are beautiful.
