Minnesota – It’s so cold that… you can go bowling outside with a watermelon. Watch and subscribe all of the Minnesota Cold Weather Experiments: www.youtube.com/nziegler .
- 10 empty 2-liter bottles
- Food coloring
- Permanent marker
- Fill the ten 2-liter bottles with water, then add about five drops of food coloring into the water of the bottles. Put the bottle caps back on. Set all of the bottles outside to freeze.
- On your watermelon, mark three dots for finger holes. Cut out the holes with a knife, draining the watermelon as you do so. (Some water will be inside, of course.) Bring the watermelon outside to freeze as well.
- Once the water in the bottles are frozen solid and the watermelon is hard, set up your “pins” and go bowling!
- When cutting the holes for your fingers in the watermelon, keep in mind your finger size with gloves on, so make the holes somewhat larger than you would for your fingers normally.
