Be­ing creative with ice

Wrapped up warm, Harry en­joys time out­side cre­at­ing ice scenes and mak­ing frozen dec­o­ra­tions

it may be tempt­ing to stay in­doors dur­ing a cold spell, but a drop in tem­per­a­ture can also lead to ex­hil­a­rat­ing ac­tiv­i­ties. Dressed in his warm­est clothes and with the help of an adult, Harry cre­ates shapes from bro­ken-up pieces of pud­dle ice. He also makes sim­ple cas­tles and struc­tures from pots of wa­ter which have been left out­side to freeze. Go­ing out­side to play on a chilly day cre­ates a sense of ad­ven­ture as the new frozen world is ex­plored.

Con­tain­ers of all sizes are part filled with wa­ter. Left out­side to freeze overnight, they be­come ice mo­saic pieces. Ar­ranged along­side chunks of pud­dle ice, imag­i­nary scenes are cre­ated in the grass. The ad­di­tion of food colour­ing be­fore freez­ing makes a bright con­trast.
