icy stuff!

we are soooo ready to go!

a different way to get down the hill

 We spent a wonderful afternoon in the forest, looking at, touching, and hopefully making ice. The children bundled up and we headed out ready to look and explore. We visited our familiar favorites with some extra close looking in between times (and many smiles)

one at a time over the bridge....look at the ice!

At the end of our walk, we placed special pieces in a pie tin, added water and a loop of string, and we hope to find ICE soon!

Until Next Time,
ice crystals under the leaves...hoar frost?

digging for ice crystals

a bird's nest!

if you look closely, you can see snowflake crystals

this is the iron wood tree!

our favorite familiar tree

gathering items to make an ice picture

arranging the materials

waiting to freeze......
