Frozen Paint Recipe

We mixed 2 TAB dry tempura paint  with 2 TAB water. (made 3 ice cubes). If you don’t happen to have dry tempura paint, just add food coloring. The results just won’t be as dramatic.

I filled up our fun shaped silicon ice cube trays with the frozen paint.

After freezing the trays a couple of hours the paint easily popped out by running the bottom under warm water for a couple seconds.

I set-up white paper on an easel and a white sheet for the kids to paint.

After a couple minutes Tinker Bell decided she had a better idea – she wanted to cool off by painting HERSELF with the cool ice!

The kids thought it was HILARIOUS and before long the new activity was painting themselves!

Cleaning up in the Kid Wash - Summer Activities for Kids

After everyone was thoroughly painted we let the kids use the Kid Wash we made to clean off! It was a refreshing way to end the FUN!

And here are two of their frozen art masterpieces: the paper and the body art.

I LOVE how their ‘body art’ came out! It was all child lead and child created =-) 
Note: All the paint came off the kids, swimsuits, and towels. We did wash them all within an hour to be safe. We like the decorated sheet so have not attempted to wash it.
