12:00pm. Water put on back deck. How long will it take to freeze?
At 12:45 Grace checked on it. Still not frozen yet. It was then decided that a second dish of water should go outside. But this one should be put on the front porch in the shade. "Let's see which freezes first!"
Dish #2 (front porch). Guesses were then made as to which would freeze first. Grace and I said it would be the front porch dish, Emma said the one on the back deck.
2:00pm- "It's a little icy!"
2:54- "Mama! Look! Ice!"
Front Porch Ice- 2:55pm- almost totally frozen. Two hours outside.
4:26pm- "We have ice!"
Just shy of four hours outside to freeze a good amount of water!
4:48pm- "It has a bubble in it!"
Almost five hours for the dish on the back deck to freeze.
And while this was surely not the quickest project it was a lot of fun to check each dish throughout the afternoon and to see the changes that occurred as each dish of water froze. Grace was super excited to see that she had correctly predicted which one would freeze first and Emma was super excited to see that "hers" had a bubble in it!
