Ice Painting

Looking for a cool art project to do on a hot summer day? Then why not try painting with ice! Simply fill up various ice cube trays with water tinted with food colouring and freeze. Once frozen children can “paint” on water colour paper for a “cool” effect. As the ice melts , the paint begins to form various patterns. Sprinkle on glitter or salts for a textured effect. Tip: If the ice is too cold for little fingers to grasp then have them use tongs to paint with.
