Kick off summer with this fun ice paint craft

Summer means being outside ALL.DAY.LONG! So send the kids out with these frozen ice paints to keep them busy and happily painting the day away.

These masterpieces can be permanent on paper or easily be washed away with water when created on the ground.


  • Ice cube tray
  • Wooden Popsicle sticks
  • Washable non-toxic paint

  • Teaspoon
  • Muffin tin (optional)


  1. In an ice cube tray, mix 1 teaspoon washable non-toxic paint with 1 teaspoon water in each ice cube space. Use various colors. It’s fun to create your own colors by mixing two colors together with the water.
