Winter Ice Craft - Gems
Get inspired with an amazing winter craft project that is great for any age member in the family. Not only is the project easy to make, but the results are beautiful and guaranteed to brighten up any dull winter's day, maybe even cure a severe case of cabin fever.
I have never been excited about winter but I am always excited by art. When I first came across this project, created by HubPages writer Faceless39, I couldn’t wait to get started. It seemed like a surefire way to learn to ‘love’ winter, even if I freeze my hands off doing it.
I am amazed at the beauty and intriguing patterns created when the water freezes. For those of you with two left hands, you should know that the success rate for this project is 100%. You can’t mess this one up. My children and I had great fun filling and freezing the balloons and waiting with great anticipation before peeling away of the balloon layer (directions below).
This is the first time that I have ever been happy about below freezing temperatures sticking around since they allow my ice gems to last that much longer. This craft project is so easy to make and with such amazing results for both kids and adults alike that I strongly suggest you give them a try.
