I saw this photo on a friend’s Facebook link. What a great idea. Those aren’t regular marbles, they’re balloon size!
The photo comes from The Cake Makery Facebook page. They are a cake making school in Hampshire, England. Very simply, they filled balloons with water and food colouring, left them outside overnight and then took the balloon off the frozen water in the morning leaving the giant marbles. What a fun activity for all concerned! I can imagine most young children enjoying this and there is new language for everyone. Best of all there is the excitement in anticipation. Thank you to the staff of The Cake Makery!
