Ice lanterns made using balloons. Have to watch them closely in the freezer, and they don't last long, but a fully frozen water balloon is tres fun too!

Willow Day Ice lanterns -- this reminds me of a tradition we have. We go to an outdoor solstice event where there are art works made of light. One year they had ice lanterns something like these.
