Ice Sculptures

WHAT IT IS: An art project involving icicles and frozen blocks of colored ice.

What you'll need

  • Food coloring
  • water
  • ice trays
  • molds
  • muffin tins and other containers
Helpful Tip:

For consistency of hardness, consider making your colored blocks in the freezer rather than outdoors.

How to play

  1. You can't have as much snow as we do and not have an abundance of icicles. We decided to incorporate some of ours into a sculpture, joining them to ice blocks made by freezing colored water in ice-cube trays, Jell-O molds and yogurt containers. We placed all the materials on an outdoor table, and everyone took turns building totem poles, monsters and free-form sculptures, gluing the blocks of ice with a little dribble of water (it quickly froze).
