Melting Heart Paint

Have your little ones ever explored with frozen paint?  It is such a neat art activity full of fun and sensory exploration.  As the paint melts it undergoes many transformations in texture and consistency, giving kids a ton of ways to learn and play in one simple activity.

Making melting heart paint is really easy.  All you need is washable paint and a heart ice cube tray.  You could also use a regular ice tray and just make regular frozen paint.  We went with a heart theme since Valentine's Day is close.  Fill the ice slots 1/2 way with paint and half way with water.  Mix the water into the paint and pop the tray in the freezer for 4-6  hours.  That's it!  Once the paint is frozen it will easily pop out from the ice tray

Melting heart paint- so fun!

I set Rosie and Jewel up with paper hearts to paint, and they had lots of fun creating and exploring the texture of the melting ice paint

Process art at it's best!

Once the girls were done painting we turned the hearts over and squished them onto the drop paper to remove any large paint clumps.  This process was fun and produced really neat blotted art effects.
