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.
This can be both fun and educational combining both science and art! Teach kids about the water cycle, about hot and cold and melting and freezing as you do this fun ice painting activity.
How to Do Ice Painting With Kids
