Paintsicles. Frozen paint cubes for creative fun.

Are you following us on Pinterest? Thanks to a recent heat wave in Melbourne, we've been having lots of fun playing with ice. The other day I thought I'd combine our love of painting by making some frozen paint cubes for the kids to paint with. I wasn't actually sure how well it'd all turn out, but the results speak for themselves. I've since tested it with a variety of different paints and found that whilst the results vary, they all provide a fun, sensory and unique painting experience…

A freezer or zipper bag, acrylic paint and a cotton bud... The perfect tool to practise mark making and letter formation. Love it!
