Frozen Cube Painting

In this activity we will use frozen coloured ice cubes for painting on paper. This is cool and fun way for kids to paint,  learn about colours and also learn about solid and liquid states.

Things Required:

  • Liquid Tempera Paint
  • Ice Cube Tray
  • Paper
  • Craft Sticks
  • Plastic wrap

What to do?

Allow the child to pour paint in the ice cube tray filled with water with different colours in each block. Cover the tray with plastic wrap. Insert craft sticks into each block of ice cube tray and allow the cubes to freeze. Once the ice cubes are frozen, remove the plastic wrap and ask the child to pull out the cubes with stick and start painting on a blank sheet of paper.


Let the child create his painting by using different ice cube blocks with different colours. While painting ask the child about the colour he/she is using. This is a fun activity for recognizing  colours. Also explain the kid about the conversion of colour from liquid to solid state in this activity
