It has been cold with a capital “C” here the past few days. Nothing to do but stay inside. I remembered seeing a cool idea on, you guessed it, Pinterest last summer. It was for frozen water balloons…
Ok these ones in the above post were too tiny, I had some regular sized balloons that I found in my junk drawer (don’t judge, you know you have a junk drawer).
here is what I did!
Get some food coloring, and some balloons and a faucet that you can stick a balloon onto
put some food coloring into the balloon, a may have over did it, but more color the better right!
The only faucet I had to accommodate a balloon was my bathroom sink, and it barely worked.
Hold on tight…the water will go everywhere if you don’t!
I did not take any pictures of a full balloon, but just tie it up…you can do it.
It does get a lil messy, it cleans up though. You could put rags down if you are worried.
The bathtub works as a good pen to keep them all in line
and since mother nature has the heater turned off, I have the natural outdoor freezer. Some people told me that they used their deep freeze, use what you have.
I brought mine outside VERY carefully, 2 at a time. It was a chore.
None popped when I was placing them. I went to check on them a half an hour later though ans 2 had explided!…just have pretty snow now 🙂
this is about 5 hours later, still liquid in there, so we will wait it out over night, and see how they are tomorrow.
I will update, don’t worry!
Ok, I’m back…and look what I found out in the yard this morning! The water froze and expanded, and the ballons were all torn.
This is what was underneath…it is still a lil messy. even though it was colder than cold, not all of the water froze. so to remove the balloons do not wear your best clothes.
My driveway is lined with happiness!
