The internet is full of ideas on how to entertain a toddler. You could spend hours scrolling through post after post and still not have a clue what you are going to do. Some ideas are great but, in my experience, many are far from the simple activity they are made out to be. If you end up stressed and in a muddle trying to follow what appear to be basic instructions on a Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest post, you are not alone. I assure you of that!
This discovery, however, was easy to do and luckily I had everything I needed in the house. To ice paint, all you need is:
- An ice cube tray
- Food colouring
- Lollypop sticks or an equivalent. I used wooden spoons I found buried in the back of my baking cupboard!
- Paper or random bits of recycled cardboard
All I did was fill ice cube trays with water, mix in a little food colouring and add spoons for handles. Then I placed in the freezer until frozen and ready to use. A good half an hours entertainment before everything ended up being thrown on the floor…
