Taste Safe Ice Painting

Taste Safe Ice PaintingYour little one will have a great time painting and exploring with these ice paint sticks. They can make some really striking watery patterns! You Will Need A Few Items:

  • Small pots (e.g. yoghurt pots)
  • Food colouring (we used wilton gel food colouring)
  • Water
  • Craft sticks
  • Card or paper

1. To make the ice paint stick, fill small pots with water and then mix in a tiny bit of gel food colouring. 2. Put a craft stick into each pot and then put then in the freezer. The ice paints will take a couple of hours to freeze. 3. Once the ice has frozen take the ice paints out of the pots and you are ready to get painting. I would recommend painting on card or thick paper. Hand the ice paint sticks to your child and let them have fun exploring the different painty effects that they can create. As these paints are made from just water and colour they are perfectly safe for babies and toddlers to use and even put in their mouths, though food colouring can stain clothes and (temporarily) skin.
