The first thing they had to do was clear out a space for their snow home.
Then they gathered up the materials for the blocks… Wait, what?
That’s right— this igloo was going to be made with the help of a bunch of used milk cartons.
By filling the cartons with water and adding some food coloring, they created some beautiful colored blocks of ice.
Just like a traditional igloo, the blocks were held together by snow.
It took a lot of very careful and precise work to add each layer of the frozen home.
But hey, this thing wasn’t going to build itself!
Slowly but surely, the colorful igloo was beginning to take shape.
Neither Daniel nor Kathleen really realized how big of an undertaking the project was until they were halfway through.
But with the help of their family members, they pressed on… and soon, the ice blocks really began to form something awesome.
They even employed the use of a wheelbarrow to help with the packing process!
By the end, all their hard work really paid off when they finally crawled inside the finished igloo.
The colored ice looked so cool from the inside!
And when it was lit up at night, it looked like a masterpiece from the outside, too.
The feel to it was so cozy that it made the cold winter a little more bearable.
It was the perfect little spot to spend some quality family time together.
Who knew you could make something so beautiful out of a bunch of old recycled milk cartons?
This little igloo is so incredible that it almost makes me miss winter!… almost. Great work, Daniel and Kathleen!
