Painting With Ice Cubes

As a 'go along' activity to our science lesson on freezing liquids, we painted with ice cubes!
This was FUN and their paintings were so pretty!
The girls simply added food coloring to the water in the ice cube trays before I popped them in the freezer.
(They were equally as delighted with this aspect. Watching the food coloring swirl around in the water is rather mesmerizing.)
The next day we had our chilly painting utensils.
In fact, they were so chilly that the girls ended up grabbing spoons to push their ice cubes around with!
Initially, it looked almost like crayon marks but as the ice cubes began to melt they resembled watercolors.
In the light of the afternoon sun flowing through our kitchen window, this was a perfect and peaceful moment. 

Give it a try!
Simple. Easy. Fun!

This looks fun! Now I need to find our ice cube trays. I think they are around somewhere...our current fridge has an ice maker.

Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
