- Heavy Paper (finger painting paper)
- Tempera Paint
- Ice Cube Tree
- Toothpicks, Drinking Straws, or Popsicle Sticks
Fill the ice cube tray with water and place in freezer. When it is about 1/2 way frozen, stick a toothpick into each cube. You can also cut drinking straws or popsicle sticks in half and put those in the ice cubes. Freeze ice cubes completely.
Once ice cubes are completely frozen you can paint with them by using the toothpick or straw as a handle! Put some blobs of paint on a piece of heavy paper (you can also used powdered tempera paint). Make fun designs and scenes by running an ice cube around on the paper through the paint. Swirl it, drag it, get creative!
