Painting with ice can be a lot of fun for a child that is around 2 years old. It’s simple and if you put a tray under the activity, it will contain any potential mess.
Painting with ice is cheap and A LOT of fun… heres how we did it:
When I was ready to use them I took them out of the freezer(this just so happened to be like 2 weeks after I made them but it obviously doesn’t take that long for them to freeze… sometimes its great to make things ahead of time even when you don’t need it)
D liked examing his new art material. He felt the ice with his fingers and see how the color comes out onto his fingers.
He actually enjoyed that I left them in the ice tray since he could pull them out and fit them back in (like a puzzle)
Here’s his final product
See how vibrant and colorful the colored ice cubes were…
Great, easy activity.
I just refreezed the ice cubes and can use it some other time 🙂
We did this for our open ended art theme today. (the theme was mixed mediums)
