|Ice Art – Go a winter walk – what can you see? What can you find. Try to collect as many objects as you can. Once you come home you can use your objects and make ice art to hang up outside. Using a range of containers, place a length of string across the top and your gathered objects on it along the bottom. Fill the container with boiled then cooled water and place it outside overnight or in your freezer to freeze. Once frozen remove the art from the container and hang in your garden.|
