Ice Cube Painting

Embrace the cold with your own ice paint! Swirl the melting paint over paper and watch the magic unfold, as the ice turns from a solid to a liquid.


  • Liquid tempura paint
  • Ice cube tray
  • Craft sticks
  • Paper
  • Plastic wrap (optional)


  1. Pour the paint into the ice cube tray.
  2. Put a craft stick into the middle of each paint cube.
  3. Carefully place the ice cube tray in the freezer and freeze overnight.
  4. When the paint cubes are frozen, it's time to paint!
  5. Swirl the frozen paint cube over paper. Use several different cubes to create a masterpiece!

TIP: If the craft sticks don’t stand up on their own, try covering the tray with plastic wrap. Poke the sticks through the plastic for stability.
