Paint with ice
  • cornstarch
  • water
  • liquid watercolor paint or food coloring
  • ice cube trays

Mix the ingredients and add to an ice cube tray.  Freeze the paint cubes.  Prep the paper with vegetable oil using either the child’s hands or  a basting brush.  Take the ice paint out of the trays and let your child glide the cubes over the paper and watch the colors spread and mix!  Set the paper aside to dry and make another!
