Painting with ice cubes!

Painting with ice cubes. Such a simple activity, and so much fun to do when the weather is hot and sunny. For this activity, I simply put water and food colouring into an ice cube tray and then placed in the freezer to freeze. A few hours later, our ‘paints’ were ready to use.

I won’t pretend they made the most beautiful pictures, but my preschooler absolutely loved the novelty of this and enjoyed the cold sensation (it was pretty hot outside!). I think I will have to do this one again for my toddler as I’m sure he’d love it too.


Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
