Ice Lantern Craft

This ice lantern is more of a science experiment than a craft. Great for a unit on winter or science about water or ice. Making it requires outside temperatures well below freezing or a really big freezer. This is something commonly done for party decorations in Scandanavia. People make a lot of them and line the driveway to the house.

Materials:

  • bucket
  • water
  • a candle
  • freezing temperatures

  2. Turn the bucket over and dump out. The The top of the bucket and the sides will be frozen, but the bottom and middle will still be water.
  3. Dump out the water and insert a lighted candle. Watch your crystal lantern glow.
