How to Make Ice Paint tutorial requires a little preplanning, but the results are out of this world and your children will love the process.  Let’s get started.

Materials

  • Ice Cube Tray (can be found at dollar store,  2 for $1! )
  • Tempra Paint
  • Craft Sticks

How to make ice paint

  1. Use a piece of aluminum foil to cover the ice tray and poke slots for each craft stick (this will help the sticks freeze upright)
  2. Add tempera paint to each block in the tray (almost 1/2 full)

3. Add a little water to each color

4. Freeze overnight

5. Remove aluminum foil and you are ready to paint!

For best results with How to Make Ice Paint let the paint sit out for about 5 to 10 minutes to loosen from tray. 

You can also add a little warm water.  If paint is kept out too long, it will separate from the stick, but this also offers a great sensory project too!  

The cool ice is fun to paint with on hot summer days, and adds a whole new experience to ‘finger painting.’ How to Make Ice Paint is an inexpensive and fun way to paint any time of the year!
