When my boy was a young child, I was permanently trying to find brand-new artistic activities to do with him. I specifically liked activities where the set-up belonged to the activity itself– y ou get more mileage out of those. We ‘d make < a class=" sc-(*********************************************************************************** )m8ut-0 iwOlBA js_link sc-1out364 -0 fwjlmD" data-ga ='-LRB- *)] href=” “> homemade play dough together or blend together corn starch, water and food coloring to make pathway paint.(************************ ).

So when I stumbled upon these homemade” < a class= "sc -145 m8ut-0 iwOlBA js_link sc-1out364 -0 fwjlmD" data-ga ='-LRB- **)] href=”” > ice paints
” on YouTube, I understood it was something we would have liked doing together. Other than that now he’s 9 years of ages and certainly too old for this sort of thing, right? Well, he does not believe so. When I asked him just recently if he want to attempt it with me so I might take some images for this post, he leapt right up and got to work. And when we were all done, he thanked me for separating his afternoon with something various.

What you require

(********************* )To make these ice paints, you’ll require to collect:(************************ ).

  • An ice tray(********************************************* ).
  • Washable paints( the video states you can utilize food coloring rather, which would most likely produce more of a watercolor appearance)
  • Water
  • Popsicle sticks

I did not have popsicle sticks and I didn’t seem like venturing out looking for popsicle sticks, so I improvised– by popping the manage off some old plastic utensils. Non-traditional, perhaps, however it worked completely great.


Step one: Squeeze a little paint into the bottom of each compartment. About 2 teaspoons must do it.(************************ ). (************************************************* )(******* ).

This was a
one-and-done activity for a 9– year-old, however if he were more youthful, I would have popped those paint popsicles into a freezer bag and stuck them back in the freezer for another day. There was a lot of paint left over to get a couple of usages out of them.
