Why should eskimos have all the fun? Build your own mini ice house at home!

What You'll Need:

- salt
- water
- 'slushie mix' (crush a couple of ice cubes with a bit of water in a blender)
- baking tray
- 4 ice cube trays
- space in your freezer
- teaspoon

What To Do:

Gather your materials

1. Fill ice cube trays with water, freeze (these will make big ice cubes).

2. Half-fill the remaining ice cube trays with water, freeze (these will make small ice cubes).

3. Sprinkle the baking tray with salt.

Get Buildin'!

4. Arrange 12 big ice cubes in a circle on the tray, and put it back in the freezer until they are frozen again.

5. Dip a second lot of ice cubes into salt (flat side down),  and center each one between two base cubes like a brick wall.

6. Fill the gaps with slushie mix and freeze again.

7. Repeat to make more layers, using the smaller and smaller cubes until you have a dome shape.

8. Create a doorway with remaining ice cubes.

9. Use your hands to cover the entire igloo with slushie mix and freeze again for a 2 – 3 hours.

10. Your masterpiece is complete - get it to school quick enough and you've got a sweet show-and-tell!
