Nothing like some ice cubes to elp the kids cool off after an evening at the park…and if it is ice cubes that you can paint with…even better…and if it ice-cubes you can paint with that have a cool thingy frozen inside them like a toy insect..it is absolute heaven for my boys. Once again, i need to thank http://www.growingajeweledrose.com for the inspiration. I used Wilton’s food color and my cupcake tray to make the ice cubes so that they would be nice and large. Also then i could put funky insect in quite easily. The boys were sooooooper delighted with this and in a couple of moments of playing with the cubes Nish announced that he was painting the bathroom wall with his turquoise blue ice cube. It is a great sensory activity and since the ice cubes are really big they are easy to catch and last long too. Definitely a must try! (the pic below shows one frozen piece while the others have yet to be frozen)
Also made edible finger paint using custard powder, water and food coloring which was a riot! Once again, the cupcake baking tray doubled up as a paint holder for us and the boys had a lovely time painting in the afternoon…and if you look at the pics you will know why I need to have edible paint for Amu!
