I is for Icicles

Icicles are a fascinating wonder of nature and always seem to make a winter day seem magical, don’t they?
When water freezes as it drips, an icicle forms. If you live in a southern climate like we do, they are rare to find. My kids will go on a quest to see who can find the biggest one–and one inevitably ends up in my freezer each year! No matter how old they are, my kids seem to be intrigued with ice and can’t resist playing with it.
God’s breath sends the ice, freezing wide expanses of water. Job 37:10 NLT
To celebrate our enjoyment of these sparkly wonders of creation, we thought we’d make some lasting icicles for our Christmas tree. These are super simple and inexpensive to make, and you probably already have all the materials you need on hand.
