Ice Cube Art

1 Comment

Ice cube art!  I found this art project idea in Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron.  My toddler (32 months) loved this project but it works for most any age child.

1.) Mix a little washable paint with water and put into ice-cube trays.  Let them freeze.

2.) Pop out cubs and place on paper inside of tray.  (I recommend giving the child a spoon or brush to push the cubes around so their hands don’t get too cold.)  

3.) Swirl around and change the paper as it gets too wet.  Hang up the painted paper.  (It will be wet!) 

You can also put also things inside the tray to mix the paint – brush, balls, cars, etc.  (B prefers to drive his cars through the paint.)

Have a towel and warm water ready to clean up and warm up hands!  (B loved cleaning his cars when he was done.)
