How to make Ice Marbles

With all the frost, this is the perfect time to make ice marbles. We filled up a couple of balloons with a couple drops of food coloring and water and layed them outside so they could get frozen. When they were frozen we peeled of the balloon. They look like giant marbles!

You don’t have to be afraid to get a little bit messy, because the food coloring will make your hands all those colors you are using. Even after it is frozen and you peel of the balloons, your hands still will get the same color as the ice marble.
