Ice painting is so much fun and a perfect activity for the warmer weather. Get outside and enjoy watching ice paints melt into each other as you glide them across your paper. We have had great fun with our brightly coloured ice paints and our taste safe ice paints are perfect for little ones who put everything in their mouths.
How to make ice paints
You will need:
- Poster paint
- Ice tray
- Match sticks
- Mix poster paint with water and pour into an ice tray.
- Add match sticks to use as handles
- Take out of the freezer and get painting
TIP: Put cling film across the top of the ice tray and poke the match sticks through to keep them upright while the ice freezes.
We used red, yellow and gold paint and froze the paints in a star shaped ice tray.
We made the most of the sunshine and took our ice paints outside. We used a large roll of paper and had lots of fun painting and watching the paints melt.
