At 6 a.m. this morning I ventured outside to harvest icicles. The task was made that much more interesting with the -13F temperatures! I filled our large cooler half full of the icey beauties. I suppose I could have woke up my kids to help, but let's just say I wasn't feeling quite that adventuresome.
So why would I go icicle harvesting? Well, my lesson today for Nature Preschool is about ice. What better way to explore ice but by bringing real icicles inside to explore!
