This a great fall activity for our weather.  We are having some cool morings and evenings but our afternoons are warm.  That is when it is is a good time to get out water and ice.  We play with colored ice and water all the time but never together like this before.  Painting with both water and ice is a cheap way to entertain the kids and it is a fun sensory experiencs for them as well.  You can also add a little learning with the colored ice. You can go over colors as you play.  With the water we painted shapes and went over them.  The rest is just fun, fun, fun!  This was a hit at my house.

What you need:  colored ice cubes( fill ice trays with water and food coloring and freeze.  I leave these in my freezer at all times bc I never know when we are going to need them.), bucket of water, and paint brushes.

What to do:  put ice cubes in a bowl and set them out with the bucket or bowl of water and let the kids have fun.

Our play.

They couldn't wait to get their hand on the ice cubes.

  1. I love how simple and cheap this activity is. Can't wait to try it. You could also do it in a popsicle mold so the kids can have a handle. Sharing this on the Mess For Less facebook page!

  2. Love this idea! So unique too. I would have never thought of using ice as a painiting tool!

  3. Love it! I'm all about Edible Art ~ painting with flavored ice, MMmmmm.

  4. This has been on my to do list for YEARS, yet for some reason I still haven't done it. Why is that?

  5. Definitely pinning this one for the summer!
