Celebrate summer with a cool sensory activity! Popsicle Painting is a fun and versatile project that the family can do together. Use them as paint brushes, or as finger paints.
For planning, you’ll need to freeze for 24 hours.
- Ice Trays – We used flexible trays that are larger than the traditional version, but use what you have at home.
- 1 Tub Whipped Topping – You can also find homemade options if you’d like to make your own.
- Food Color
- Popsicle Sticks
- Small Bowls (optional)
- Separate whipped topping into small bowls. (Based on the number of colors you have).
- Add food color to the bowl and mix. If you’d like to use one color, mix into the container. We used 5 colors and filled the 6th cube with a mix of the leftover colors.
- Add mixuture to ice cube tray.
- Add the popsicle stick to each.
- Freeze (we let freeze for 24 hours).
- Take cubes out by using a knife to separate mixture from the sides.
- Take out and start painting!
Yield: 6 large ice cubs or 12 traditional size cubes
