Why stick to basic paints when you can make these awesome ice paints?! We found this great idea over at One Savvy Mom and had to test it out for ourselves! These paints are a fun way for you and your kids to enjoy the outdoors this summer and are an awesome learning activity for young kids.
- Craft Paper
- Measuring Spoons
- Popsicle sticks or wooden craft sticks
- Ice cube tray
- Washable non-toxic paints
- Add 1 tbsp of washable non-toxic paint and 1 tsp water in each space in your ice cube tray. Use as many different colors as you like!
- Place a popsicle stick or wooden craft stick into each space in the ice cube tray.
- Freeze the filled ice cube tray for 2-3 hours or until the paint is completely frozen.
- Once frozen, remove your ice paints from the ice cube tray and place on a baking sheet or muffin tin (this will catch any of the melted paint and prevent it from leaking and causing a mess).
- You're now ready to create your ice paint masterpiece! Roll out your craft paper and have fun!
