Beat the Heat with Ice Art
Being right in the middle of summer we are all about ice and water play. In addition to play, my boys still look for their daily art activity. What is the best way to create art in summer? By focusing on ice art! Here are our favorite frozen art activities for kids.
Frozen Art for Kids
We love making ice art sculptures and shared a fun place to make them while containing all the mess. Since then we have also made ice art on a much smaller scale. For one of my weekly play dates I froze water in take and toss cups, so each child at the play date could make his own sculpture. It was a huge hit with all of the children. This is one frozen activity we never tire of.
This recipe for frozen sidewalk chalk paint from Reading Confetti is pure genius! As soon as I saw her post I knew I needed to try it with my boys. They love the frozen chalk painting, and so did I!
