Painting on Slide with Frozen Paints!!

Today's activity is a combination of Slide painting and painting with Ice cubes which we have done previously. It was a fun filled artsy morning and was great to see the colors on the paper as the cubes melted!!
I just spooned several colours of crayola washable paint into the icecube trays, added water and stirred them to mix and let it freeze.
Then grabbed my roll of easel paper, painter tape, a tray to hold the drippings and plenty of wipes and we set off to our favorite slide in the apartment!!
Putti did not want to stay on the top of the slide like last time, so I just taped the paper to the bottom half of the slide which worked perfect for Putti's height. And off goes the first frozen paint cube... weee !!

Love the rainbow colors ....

She loved sliding the paint cubes around...
 Picking it up to drop from above again..
The outside temperature was damn hot that they all melted pretty fast and she loved smearing the paints all over the paper to make a cool painting :)

She wanted to let all the colors slide down together at once and I had to help her line them all up ....
And then there was more and more hand painting and our paper did rip at many places....
And thats how our slide painting looked towards the end....
The pan which held the colorful drips..

Next time I try this we will use some heavy paper maybe tape several pieces of fingerpaint paper together ! Or maybe try it with long fabric.

Perfect artsy activity for summers. Love the rainbow colours all over the paper and how they collected in the pan. This inspires me to get going on the slide - irrespective of the fact that we don't have easel papers. We'll try our luck with ANY other paper, newspaper or even fabric! ha!

Ooh the frozen paint really add to the effect and process! Love it!

Thank you for linking to Kids Get Crafty!


Love this idea. We did color ice cubes in the pool this weekend but my oldest would love this too. Thanks for sharing!

I love how you're pushing the "slide art" envelope and how you've turned that useless slide into something wonderful! I hope it cools down for you soon.

What a fun idea! My kiddos will love this!

so much fun! fingerpainting paper worked well for us and I would imagine sometype of fabric (like a sheet) would be great too!

Thanks for linking up your fun to the Sunday Showcase - the frozen painting has been a hit here too!


Thanks so much for linking up to Made by Little Hands Monday!! I appreciate it! I loved this so much I featured it this week so come by my blog tomorrow evening and check it out!
Thanks again!

what a cool idea! Would never of thought of doing that! x

What a great idea! Look like big & cool art for a hot day.

I have had kids paint with ice cubes before, but you took it to the next level! Very creative! Love it!

Can't wait to try this! Featuring it on my Kid's Co-op post tomorrow! Thanks for the great idea!

Painting with ice is one of my daughters favorite activities. What a great idea to do it on the slide! I am featuring this for the week on my Kids Co-Op post! :)

This looks so much fun and creative!! I love it!!

This is fantastic! I can't wait for it to be summer again here so we can try this. I've featured thsi on my blog today as one of my favourites from last week's Weekly Kid's Co-op. Thanks for linking up.

Ooh what a good idea! We have icecube paints on our Summer Bucket List but this is even better! Will have to work out some way to sneak into our local park to do it though, might look a bit crazy?!

Thanks for stopping by The Sunday Showcase, hope to see you there again next week!


p.s. could you use watercolour paper? That might hold up a bit better?

We love ice painting! What a brilliant way to make it huge and watch the colors blend! We use thick cardstock, and we haven't had any tears yet.
