Let's paint with ice! This garden activity is perfect for those sunny days when children are feeling hot and restless. This not stop experiment will keep them cool and encourage them to be creative, important for social skills and friendships when they start school.
Fill each section of an ice-cube tray with water and a few drops of food coloring or even liquid water colour paints.
Cover the tray with a layer of tin foil, this will stop the stick falling over in the next step.
Insert a stick or a pencil through the foil and freeze them.
Wen you're ready to get colouring grab your ice along with the paper outside
As the ice melts, get painting with the melting, slippery, sliding cube.
