Audrey says today is “Leap Year Day!” It is special because it only comes once every four years. Grandpa says that “girls can ask if a boy will marry her”. But why on Leap Year Day only? Why, can you tell me?
We got a bucket and a disposable plastic cup. We filled the bucket one third full of water. Then we put some rocks in the cup and made sure it sunk to the bottom of the container. The cup has to have the bottom of it at the bottom of the bucket so that it can come out easier.
Put them outside, or you can cheat and put them in the freezer. Wait until they are solid ice. Take them out. If you can’t take the cup out, put some hot water in the cup and it should come out immediately. (Don’t dump the cold water on the front steps because it will get icey!)
Then you can put votive or tea light candles in the ice candle hole and burn them outside on snow or the cold ground.
They are beautiful!
