Have you ever done ice painting? This was a perfect activity for a hot sunny summer day. The kids really enjoyed watching the ice melt and swirling them around as they did. Here is how you do this simple, but fun activity:
ice cube trays
popsicle sticks (cut in half)
Fill the trays with water & put a few drops of food coloring in each one. You can mix colors or do different strengths of colors for variety. Put a stick into each & freeze overnight.
Get out lots of paper. I used my newsprint roll of paper (from a newspaper office, I bought the roll end for only $3- it has lasted me for YEARS!)
