Today we did a fun hot weather project. It was very overcast and yet bright today, so my images are a bit off, but you will get the idea! :)
I took a ice tube tray and filled it shallowly with water. I added food coloring drops to make a range of shades, and then froze it.
We went outside (highly recommended) and placed water color paper on a non-staining table (find something to weigh the paper down). I broke each color up into chunks, and the boys placed the ice on their paper.
They let the cubes melt a little...
...and then they couldn't contain themselves any longer, and pushed around the ice, the liquid, and moved the paper around to get streaks and designs and all types of shapes.
Let the paint/water soak into the heavy paper and dry!
