Painting with Colored Ice Cubes!

This is a great process art, sensory and fine motor activity! Especially on a hot summer day!

Materials:
Ice Tray
Water
Food coloring
Popsicle sticks

First you fill a ice cube tray up with water(I got mine at the dollar store). Next put 1-3 drops of food coloring in the water.

Put a popsicle stick in each ice cube. Then put in the freezer over night.

The boys figured out that when you leave the ice cube on the paper for a couple of seconds it starts to melt and spreads easier.
