Introduction: Ice Gems

An awesome water filled, ice encased sphere.

Step 1: Material

all you need is a regular balloon (not a water balloon) and food color (optional)

Step 2: Add Water

fill the balloon with water (not too big, but not too small). If you have food color add three drops.
-then tie it up

Step 3: Freeze

Freeze for about four hours depending on the size of the balloon.
-you can tell if it's done by tapping the top, if it is hard it's ready.

Step 4: Pop

take it out and poke the top with a toothpick until it pops

-though it looks solid the ice gem is actually filled with water,
if the water doesn't drain then poke the top with a toothpick and it will.

have fun
