Steps

  1. Prepare your ice paint (If you are planning on this activity I recommend preparing the night before so you are ready to go!) 
  2. Place the watercolor paper in the box top. (I added masking tape to keep the paper in place, but it is not necessary)
  3. Pop the ice paint on the paper and start shaking!

See how much fun my son had

Another alternative is to let your child use their fingers and paint with the ice.  My boys LOVED this and had a great time adding the cool paint to their pictures.
