Family sleep in garden igloo

Sleeping outside while the weather is so wintry isn't something most of us would want to do.

But as Leah's been finding out, the freezing temperatures gave one family the perfect excuse to try out life in their icy garden igloo.

*** It's important to remember that sleeping outside in such cold temperatures can be very dangerous, so don't try it unless you've checked with an adult first.

And if you're thinking of going ice-skating on frozen water, definitely check with an adult before you even think of strapping on your skates. ***
