The temperatures have been below freezing for some days here in Wyoming. Rather than stay in, get outside and try some of these fun experiments with friends.

Cold weather can produce some really cool things for you to entertain yourself outside. A friend of mine, in Gillette, Wyoming, decided to throw water in the air while the temperatures were freezing. The water froze and he was amused.

Here are 5 ways to entertain you, friends and the kids when it gets really, really cold outside. Try them out for yourself and then tell us how it went.

    Probably a good idea to don the goggles for this one.

    Make A Banana 'Hamma!'

    It's hammer time. That's right! Banana 'hamma' time! You'll have to put the banana outside over night before you can use it as a useful tool. A great idea should you misplace your hammer!

    Watch A Bubble Freeze

    It's really a lot more fun than watching grass grow. It's a whole lot cooler too, on so many levels.

    Reboot Your Brain

    Ice holes are used for more than just ice fishing. If you're really brave, and really stupid, you might try ice hole fishing. Do this at your own risk!
