Kids Winter Fun~Simple & Colorful Ice Ornaments

We’ve had some pretty chilly weather here lately and have a lot of white snowy landscape around as a result. The girls and I have been wanting to try something and this has been the perfect climate to hang some pretty colorful jeweled ice ornaments a midst all the white.

These are super easy and fun for little ones to do as well.

You’ll need:

Paper cups ~ These ones were 5 oz size

Food coloring

Popcicle Sticks

String or twine

Fill up the cups with water and a few drops of food coloring {sorry no picture…but I have faith that you got this step!} Throw them into the freezer.

While they start getting solid, grab your sticks and ¬†your Crop~a~Dile and punch holes in one end. You can skip this step and just tie the string around the ends instead…just make sure it’s tight! I also cut the sticks down a little because I’m OCD….you can skip this step too if the long sticks don’t bother you.

After about 30 minutes take the cups out of the freezer and add the sticks. They won’t be frozen enough yet, so throw some Press n’ Seal, plastic wrap, or tin foil over the top and poke a hole to help hold the stick till they freeze.

Once they freeze, just tear the cup away, add the string…

If you want them to last a few days, avoid super sunny places ;)

I wonder what our neighbors think of us…hanging frozen popsicles on our trees.
