Ice Art. Fill balloons with water and place cookie cutters on cookie trays, fill them with water and put them out outside to freeze. Using water and freezing it into different shapes is a great way to introduce art and science to kids, and as an added bonus you get some great creations in your garden or backyard for your winter party.

Fill a balloon with water, set out in the cold and wait until it has frozen at least a half inch thick, a little more. The balloon freezes all the way around. Drill a hole to get the water out and put in a light. Use balloons of different sizes and put together in groups.
