So fun for the kids to help make too! 

What you need to make icy hand sculpture

  • New rubber gloves – buy the cheap thin ones
  • Water – to freeze in the glove, or use lemonade if you prefer
  • Elastic band
  • Bottle of lemonade
  • Black food colouring
  • Wooden spoon
  • Large jug

How to make icy hand sculptures

  • Fill the rubber gloves with water, or lemonade if you’re making lemonade flavoured hands – not to the top just to beginning of wrist.
  • Fasten glove shut with an elastic band.
  • Pop it in the freezer – you need to suspend it from the shelf above so that it freezes in a good hand shape.
  • Leave them for a good few hours to freeze solid or overnight if possible.
  • Prepare your fizzy puddle water – pour lemonade into the jug add a good squirt of black food dye and stir using the wooden spoon.
  • Remove icy hand from the freezer – run it under hot water quickly so that the glove comes off easily. (you may need to cut glove)
  • Put the icy hand into the jug and serve.
