Ice Candles

There's no shortage of snow here, so we made some indoor use of it. We put tealights upside down in a baby bowl, and topped it with snow. I put it in the freezer to get more solid for about an hour. At dusk, we took them out and lit them. What fun!!

Jessie,
Before having children, we took ice cream pails and filled half with water, then we froze them, then we put a tin can full of rocks in the middle and added more water and put back outside to freeze. Once frozen, we hit the tin out and placed a tea light inside. We made a bunch of them and made a light path down our driveway. We sometimes put berries or twigs in the water as it was freezing.
It was beautiful, too bad I can not find a picture now.
Thanks for bringing back the memory with your wonderful snow tea lights!

That sounds gorgeous. I love adding bird seed, too.

So pretty! We do not have any snow here, nor do my boys have a concept of snow, but I do and just love this. Thanks for sharing! Seeing something as pretty as your snow candles almost makes me wanna see some real snow again (been 4 years since we have seen it at all).
Have a happy, snowy weekend!

I wish I could mail you some, Colleen. Snow is fun, but we are ready for a green spring here!

Jessie,
Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. I love very small doses of snow but my kids would love more, much more!
