Frozen Pants Challenge – level 2

17-02-2021 07:00

Arctic winds brought very cold weather to the US, and several people already died. For some people, though, it was a lot of fun, too.

Many people took part in the frozen pants challenge, and social media became full of photos of frozen pants which were standing outside on their own.

Some people were very creative, and they used pajama pants or hockey and karate uniforms to make funny photos.  A woman in Minneapolis decorated her front garden with pants of different colors to make her day bright.

If you want to try it, the trick is simple. You soak your pants in water and hang them outside. It takes only a few minutes and the pants start to freeze. Then you shape the pants and put them outside in the snow.

Difficult words: creative (when somebody has many interesting ideas), soak (to put something in water and make it wet), shape (to change the form or look of something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
