Materials:

  • coated cookie cutters
  • flexible plastic container
  • thread
  • hammer
  • weighted object
  • scissors
  • clothespins

Step-By-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Place cookie cutters flat in container. Cut lengths of thread; loop one around each cookie cutter. Affix both ends of each thread to edge of pan with a clothespin.

Step 2

Partially fill container with water, being careful to not cover cutters completely. If you like, sprinkle glitter inside cutters.

Once frozen, pop out ice shapes from the cutters. If necessary, gently tap with hammer to remove extra ice. Tie thread ends together.
