Valentine Sun Catchers
I saw this idea for ice sun catchers in my Family Fun magazine last year and decided to make them this week.
First we froze ice cubes with food coloring in them. If you live somewhere crazy like we do, you don't even have to use the freezer. You can use the back porch (or back snow pile in our case).
We dumped the ice cubes into heart shaped cake pans. They used round cake pans in the magazine but I figured hearts were perfect for this week. Add a cup full of water so you have a hole in it when it's frozen. Pour tap water into the pan until it's almost full then pop the pan in the freezer.
Here are our hearts hanging in our trees. It's been in the single digits and negatives this week so they're lasting out there just fine.
