Brrrrrrrrr..... Explorations in the Cold!
It is midnight, and the temperature is negative 2 Fahrenheit.
Most people are snuggled inside, many are sleeping.
If you haven't figured it out yet, we aren't most people.
Where are we?
OUTSIDE OF COURSE!!!!
The world around us is covered in snow, but we thought we would try to make some more. Allan read or saw this idea a while back and we were waiting for just the right moment to give it a go... and well... tonight was the night!
I apologize for my lack of ability when it comes to good night time videos! I hope you can still see how this works. You need to use extremely hot, boiling water. We brought a pitcher of it outside and poured a small amount into a glass. Then we sent the water flying high into the air... and POOF! It freezes and turns to snow in seconds!
Now, I'm not a fan of extremely cold temperatures... but part of me CANNOT wait until we have temperatures this low during the day so that we can try this activity when the children are here!
Another fun activity for freezing cold temperatures is blowing bubbles! Did you know that they freeze? Unfortunately, none of the photos of the bubbles in the dark turned out. I'll post a few when I capture a good one!
