Painting on ice

This fun toddler painting activity is great for a hot summers day. You will need to prepare the ice the night before but it’s totally worth it. Children love playing with ice and will be curious to see what happens with the paint while the ice is melting.

You will need:

  • A baking tray or shallow tray/ tub that can go in the freezer
  • 1-2 tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • water
  • tempera paint and brushes

How to:

Mix water with the bicarb/baking soda and pour into your container. Set it in the freezer overnight (the addition of the bicarb is what makes it go white). When ready to use, leave in the tray or take it out. Set out tempera paint and brushes and let your child paint the ice.
