Once it gets cold enough, I am definitely making some of these this year! It's currently 57 degrees and raining in central MA, so I'll have to wait a bit. I'm planning to put some in my yard and some in the courtyards at school (I just need to sneak in early or stay late to put them out as a surprise). I bought balloons the last time you made these, but I don't know where they are. I guess I have a little time to find them Smiley

Fun! They do take a couple days to freeze solid in the freezer and the parts touching other things are the last to freeze.

I have a chest freezer that has some room, so I might pop them in there. Once I get my hands on the balloons, I can get started! And, not that I'm asking for it to get cold and snowy, but I can't put them out until it does Smiley

We also have a chest freezer and it took a couple days for them to freeze all the way through in there. This year it was in the single digits at night when I made them so I just set them outside on top of the trash can to freeze! Flipped them over after several hours to freeze the side touching stuff faster.

If I get balloons tomorrow and start them now, they'll be frozen by the time we get any snow, possibly next weekend.

Thanks! We had a warm spell (by which I mean 6-8 degrees warming than freezing) and they're pretty much gone now. If I remember to find some better balloons, I might make more this year!
