Ice Cube Painting

ages 2-6


Water, ice cube trays, food coloring, paper

Activity Detail

Begin by filling an ice cube tray with water. Then, help your child to add a drop or so of food coloring to each cube, creating a variety of colors. Put the tray into the freezer until frozen solid. Once they are frozen, pop the cubes out -- onto a plate or into a big bowl -- and head outside to create some art. Give your child some white paper, and let them create beautiful masterpieces from the melting ice. In addition to creating art, you can also use this activity as an opportunity to teach your child about water's different stages -- liquid, frozen, melting.
