Frozen disks of colour

The book Designs for Living and Learning has some really cool ideas in it. One (even if I don’t have the photograph) is described in the following blurb:

“Children [from Little House for Little People, Spokane, Washington] created …enchanting frozen disks of color…. First they put water, colored tissue paper, and sparkly sequins into a pie tin, and then froze it. As the shimmering disc hangs from the trees the children can see the color reflected through it and watch as it melts away and is transformed again.” (p.132)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
