Ice Cube Painting

We've been wanting to try this all summer, but we just now made time for it.  I filled an ice cube tray with water and added washable poster paints.  We only have red, blue, and yellow, so we had a lesson on mixing colors.  We mixed the colors with toothpicks and then froze the cubes.

 I left the toothpicks in four of the cubes to see if they would work for handles while painting.  The toothpicks just broke- don't try it!  After the cubes froze, we took them outside and had a blast painting with them!
