The semi-frozen product
Project - Winter Sun Catcher II - We did another frozen sun catcher today, in part because Lauren didn't do one with us yesterday, and because I have been wanting to do this particular project for almost 3 years now!! I saw this project in the February 2007 issue of Family Fun Magazine - www.familyfun.com/magazine Directions - Cut orange into slices, place orange slices and pine branches in the bread pan and add enough water to cover them. Then add cranberries(we use Craisins) and any other colorful berry (we also used frozen blueberries). Then lay the ends of rope/twine in the pan (make sure the ends are submerged deep enough). Let the pan freeze outside or in the freezer. Remove the ice block from the pan and hang it outside (you may need to run warm water over the back of the pan). Connor and Lauren were very excited to make this project - they kept on checking outside to see if it was frozen! Materials Needed - rectangular bread pan, one orange cut into round slices, small pine branches, fresh or frozen berries - cranberries, blueberries, Craisins, sturdy twine/ rope
