Frozen Easter Decorations

If you happen to live in a place that still gets below freezing around Easter time, these are fun outdoor decorations that you can do with your kids. I'm always finding fun little crafts and experiments on Pinterest, but few turn out like the pictures lol 

These, however, actually turned out pretty well. And they are so simple to make! If you can fill a water balloon, you can make these. All you have to do is take the balloon, put a few drops of food coloring in, and then fill them up. If it's cold enough, you can then just gently place them outside overnight. In the morning, peel the balloon off and you are left with these pretty frozen globes of ice. 

If your weather has (hopefully) warmed up, you could probably just toss these in the freezer overnight and get the same results (though of course they won't last as long once you put them outside) :)

Next time we do these, we'll try larger balloons and maybe place them in a bowl or something so they turn out more round instead of egg shaped. But this shape is perfect for Easter decorating!
