How to Make Ice Paint
- Popsicle sticks & ice cube tray or something along these lines
- Neon food color
- Paper, we used this exact one so it would be sturdy
- A silicone mat will help keep food coloring off your table and surfaces
Start by filling each compartment of your tray with water, almost to the top. Let the kids help with this step as they’ll be able to work on their hand/eye coordination as well.
Add a few drops of color into each one. Again, let the kids pick and choose! I mixed a few colors together in some sections and added only 1 drop of the green in one and a few drops of green in another to vary up how they look.
They can even create some new colors if they want!
Rainbow Ice Cube Painting
Set in the popsicle sticks or plastic sticks so that when the ice freezes, they have handles to pull them out with.
Put the ice cube container in the freezer and freeze until they’re completely frozen.
Then, lay out a work surface cover and paper and then let the creativity flow!
They can use the ice to create anything that they want!
And just keep in mind that it’s going to get a little bit messy but that’s half the fun!
Let their creations dry and hang them up for all to see!
Ice Painting only uses two ingredients and the kids have the best time creating with ice paint.
Once you make this easy ice cube painting, your kids will love these fun summer activities too.
