Ice Flowers

A bit of creative fun today to make the most of this cold weather.

First pick some winter flowers and leaves, collect a jar lid or small bowl, some string and some water.

Arrange your flowers in the bowl or lid.

Pour the water in and push the flowers gently under the surface.

Then put the string in the water, leaving a loop at the top.

Put the bowl or lid outside in the cold over night.

In the morning remove the ice from the bowl -you may want to place it in a larger dish of hot water briefly if it's frozen solid. Hang your pretty ice flower from a snowy branch. Beautiful!

Enjoy the snow and stay safe and warm!
