Before the photo dump I’ve got prepared for today, Have a look at this!! Chicago Parent is arranging a community activity for local folks to make ice balloons to display in a park – and they used my picture with their announcement! Woo!
If Chicago wasn’t a 15 hour drive, I’d TOTALLY swing by with a cooler full of frozen balloons!!
Here in CT it hasn’t gotten above freezing today, so my balloons are most definitely frozen. And so is the rest of me.
I’ve got a couple dozen more to play with, but it’s just way too cold today. Soon. I’ve been looking through old preschool ice sculpture pictures and just as in love with the idea as I’ve ever been, they’re just the sweetest idea and the end result is so beautiful.
It’s the “community” aspect, too that makes me love it. I can make blocks and shapes and colors of ice, but it’s not as magical when 4 classes of 3 and 4 year olds and their parents do it together.
