Cold Hard Cash GiftMy daughter made this for her brother as a gift for his 16th birthday. It was fun to make and even more fun to give to him!



  • bowl (lid optional)
  • water
  • cash
  • freezer


  1. Fill a small bowl with water. Gently submerge the bills in the water, pressing them around the edges of the bowl, until you have good coverage all the way around the outer part of the bowl.
  2. Cold Hard Cash Gift - bowl of water
    Cold Hard Cash Gift - dollar bills

  3. Put the lid on the bowl and place it in the freezer overnight. Make sure it is frozen solid before you take it out.
  4. Cold Hard Cash Gift - cover with the lid and freeze
  5. Turn the bowl upside down and run it under warm water to release the ice from the bowl.
  6. Cold Hard Cash Gift - once frozen, to give to the recipient, run the bowl under warm water to release the ice clock

  7. Put the ice block on a plate and give it to someone special. :)
