Valentine Craft: Ice Hearts

Dear Chicago House,

Question: What can you make with water, food coloring, freezing temperatures and a silicon baking mold?

Answer: Why some icy valentine hearts that’s what!

Aren’t these just lovely and the when the weather warms up there is no clean up…they just melt away.

I made them by adding a few squirts of red food coloring to a jug of water, filling a simple heart shaped baking mold and just leaving it outside. We did have a day of rain before they froze which may explain why the color is just in the center and not uniformly distributed, but I kind of like it this way.



Love from
