Learn how to make frozen paint pops for a cool sensory experience.

By Emily Kinniburgh and Hillary Hughes

What You Need:

  • liquid tempera or poster paint
  • ice cube trays or homemade ice pop molds
  • craft sticks

What You Do:

  1. Pour liquid tempera paint into ice cube trays or other containers.
  2. Put craft or popsicle sticks in each compartment (they may lean a bit, but that’s OK)
  3. Let set overnight in freezer.
  4. Dip bottom of container in warm water to loosen.
  5. PAINT!

The paint will melt as it hits the paper. Small children will find this particularly exciting.
