Ice garden

Image

This is a very fun thing to do with a collection of flowers and/or stones from a walk or from the garden…

Image

Arrange them in a tupperware tub,

Image

fill with water and freeze overnight. Then sit the tubs for a few seconds in a larger bowl or the sink with a couple of inches of warm water, to release the ice block.

Image

So beautiful! We kept it in the freezer for ages…

Sam decided it made a perfect home for these critters…

Shell bugs and their home

Image

Here are some cute critters and their home that we made with some foil, a hot glue gun and a bunch of seashells…Image

Image

…oh and some googly eyes of course!

Image

Shape some kitchen foil into a mini cave,

Image

add some shells using the glue gun,

Image

and move your critters in!

Image

You can even make them a pool garden to go outside!
