Ice Painting

I have seen this idea many times, and have always wanted to give it a we did. R helped me mix up the paint and water. R then poured it into an ice cube tray (with some help) and placed half a craft stick into each ice cube tray. 

 After freezing them overnight, we got to painting.

Once R had finished painting, we let the painting dry. The colours really faded as it dried. Here is the finished product. It looks like a beautiful watercolour painting.

Tip: Take the ice cubes out of the freezer a few minutes before you give them to your child, so they do not get frustrated waiting for the ice to melt enough to use them.
