Frozen in Carbonite

There is a scene in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back where Han Solo is frozen in some kind of substance known as “carbonite.” This scene made quite an impact on my son, who frequently refers to his Lego figures as being frozen in carbonite. I decided to take this imaginary state a step further recently by freezing a few of his Star Wars Lego figures in ice (or, as we call it, ‘carbonite’). ¬†These carbonite cubes have been quite a hit at our house of late, and now my son has taken to making his own frozen figures. ¬†With temperatures well over 100 degrees, an activity that combines ice with Legos and Star Wars is definitely good times.
