Painting On Ice!

I knew when I researched this activity that my toddlers would LOVE this activity, but that my 8 and 10 year olds would be dubious at first, and I was proved correct...


YOU'LL NEED


  • Paint or Food Colouring

  • Water

  • Bowl

  • Paint Brush

  • Tray

  • Freezer!




PREP TIME: Overnight + 5 minutes


ICE:

  • Fill some bowls with water and freeze them overnight.

PAINT:

  • Ad 10ml liquid food colouring to 50ml water to use as paint; OR

  • Finger paint (store bought or see recipe in our blog post HERE); OR

  • Use Waterpaint

PLAY INVITATION:

Get everything ready and let your toddler or child discover it by themselves!


AND HERE IT IS:




BABIES:

  • Let them touch and explore the paint and ice with their hands and feet.

  • Make sure they don't play too long! The intense cold can become painful.

  • VARIATION: Put the paint/food colouring into the water before you freeze it for a more contained mess.

TODDLERS:

  • Teach them about colours and how primary colours mix together.

  • VARIATION: Freeze items into the ice!

OLDER KIDS:

  • They might be sceptical at first, but it soon turns into fun!

  • VARIATION: Give them some salt to pour over the ice while painting. It makes cool craters and bumps to paint.


I know this will be loads of fun!
