Ice lantern

It's still very cold at the moment.  Pony riding was cancelled as it was too icy.  Spider webs are looking magical.
We made an ice lantern, an idea from the Woodland Trust Nature Detectives.  We put some water in a bowl, then put a smaller bowl in it.  We added some pebbles to weigh it down a little.
After a night outside, the water froze into a bowl shape.
We put it outside the front door with a nightlight, to welcome Rob home after work.  It looked gorgeous!  We have another one freezing tonight.
