Yesterday, we filled an ice cube tray with water, and with our kindergarten children, added different colours of tempera paint into each space. We stirred them thoroughly and put the tray in the staff room freezer.
This morning, we brought the tray into the classroom to show the children how the coloured water had froze. We then popped out the ice cubes and used them to paint on white paper. The heat of our fingers melted the ice just enough to allow the colour to transfer to the paper.
We put the rest of the ice cubes into 2 foil pans and set up 2 tables with white paper where the children could enjoy painting and creating with the coloured ice cubes.
