Ice Egg Nests Part 3
The largest of our Ice Egg nesting sites was set up at Lake Pine in Apex, NC yesterday. A total of nine nests and over 30 ice eggs.
A lesson learned: don't try to freeze too many ice eggs at the same time. They need space between them to freeze correctly. Otherwise they just end up breaking. Cleaning food coloring out of a freezer isn't as much fun as it sounds.
The nests are constructed out of pine straw. To make the nesting site more realistic :) we varied the size of the nests and the amount of eggs each nest held.
It's always fun to catch people's reactions to the nests. You'd be surprised how many people just walk right by like the nests aren't even there. But the people who do stop and look spend most of their time trying to figure out what the eggs are made of.
