Fun Summer Activities
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.

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.
