So winter has come to your part of the world. And while you love the cold, crisp, white outdoors, rolling snowmen has gotten a little old. If this describes you, you must try the fun activity of ice sculpting. You may have seen some beautiful ice sculptures on television, at a winter festival or wedding. If you were inspired, the following beginner project can get you started. We found this example online at: https://www.instructables.com/Easy-ice-sculpture-for-kids-of-all-ages/. As the title indicates, everyone from nine to ninety can achieve a beautiful sculpture on the first try.

Ice sculpture is a form of sculpture that uses ice as the raw material. Sculptures from ice can be abstract or realistic and can be functional or purely decorative. Ice sculptures are generally associated with special or extravagant events because of their limited lifetime.

The lifetime of a sculpture is determined primarily by the temperature of its environment, thus a sculpture can last from mere minutes to possibly months. There are several ice festivals held around the world, hosting competitions of ice sculpture carving.
