Ice Cube Painting

It was "Winter Week" in preschool this week with all sorts of super-duper winter activities!  There was the "ice skating rink", pretend snow in the sensory table, snowman games, "Break the Ice", and painting with ICE CUBES!!  Oh yes, painting with ice cubes just happened to be the Special Activity of the day and it was a real hit.  Food coloring was added to the water and frozen in regular ice cube trays.  The kiddos wore gloves (always tricky getting those little fingers where they belong!) and then created their designs by "coloring" with the different colored cubes.

You could modify this activity by using various ice cube trays with different shapes and sizes or colors.  One little hint to share is to have some extra gloves because they do get wet as the kiddos color.  Very simple and very FUN!
