Snowman made from ice in Oak room
We took water balloons and filled them with water, then froze them. We cut the balloons away and sprinkled some Epsom salt in the bottom of a tub and placed the largest ball, then we sprinkled Epsom salt on top of it and stuck the middle size ball next. Finally we sprinkled more Epsom salt and attached the smallest ball.
We were thinking that when the children started "Painting" them with shaving cream (to look like snow); that they might fall over, but they stayed all morning! The children really had fun on this 40 degree day with no snow outside to explore our ice snowman!
