Painting ice is perfect fot a hot summer's day - painted ice flower kid's arts & crafts

I don’t know how the weather has been where you are, but the past few days here have been hot, like really hot. I love the outdoors, but am not a fan of the heat. We made some simple sidewalk paint out of cornstarch & water & were eager to play with it. Because of the heat, I packed a big bowl of ice just to help keep us cool. It turned out that that giant bowl of ice turned into a day of icy fun. I took a few cubes out & put my bare feet on top of them to keep cool, but my daughter grabbed some cubes out of the bowl & started creating.

She formed a flower with some ice cubes & then grabbed our sidewalk paint and painted the cubes. She was very excited about how pretty her flower was. I grabbed a couple of leaves & a stem to finish it off. She loved it.

She continued to form designs with the cubes. She dipped the cubes in the paint, she painted them with her brush & we even had ice cubes races to see which colored cubes would melt the farthest.

We went through many bowls of ice cubes. Since my daughter loves vinegar & baking soda, we added some into the mix & made icy baking soda eruptions.

After we used up our last bowl of ice & all of our baking soda, we finally used our paints for a few sidewalk designs.
