Today was the first proper frost of the season so we got wrapped up and went out to play in the garden.
We found ice had formed in the water play tubs - which were full from the recent heavy rain.
It was just sheets of ice sitting on the top of the water but they were thick enough to carefully pick up and hold for a minute or two to look at the icy patterns before they shattered.
Some fell on the deck and we put the rest into another tub to investigate.
Monty held the ice shards briefly but found them shockingly cold, especially on such a chilly day!
Then we shook the ice in the tub and found it made a great sound - definitely his favourite part of this experience.
