How To Make Winter Rainbow Color Icicles

This step by step tutorial of How To Make Winter Rainbow Color Icicles is a fun outdoor science project that uses nature to visualize the process of cold temperatures and liquids into a beautiful art show. This would be something different for the kids to do during winter break.

My grandmother showed us how to create rainbow colored icicles when I was a kid in a different method – the below method is safer. She would throw kool aid powder up on the roof and when icicles form it was an amazing color show of different combinations.

With bone chilling temperatures, many people can develop “cabin fever” due to being forced indoor for days upon days. To counteract these feelings, it is important to supply creative interact projects to entertain children. They can bundle up and go through the steps of the project and then continually check in with the project by looking out a window.

Icicles can form during bright, sunny, but subfreezing weather, when ice or snow melted by sunlight and refreezes as it drips off under exposed conditions.
