What we used:
skull ice cube tray
What I did:
I filled the trays with paint and put in the freezer. Once frozen, it was time to paint!
I had some white poster board at the house. I got it out for them to paint on.
I just love how the frozen paints turned out. Big brother has been big on skeletons and skulls the last few weeks. That is why we made skull paints.
I chose orange, green, and purple paints. I just love those Halloween colors.
This was a great sensory art experience for the kids. It was also a fun process art project for them too.
The kids are 5.5yr, 3yr, and 1.5yr. I supervised them painting. The 2 older boys know not to eat paint but baby brother had to be watched closely.
But boy did he have fun. You can see how much fun he had in the picture above.
Oh, it wouldn’t be real if you did not see the kids fighting over the paints. Typical brothers, learning to share through play at my house.
Once we settled that there was enough paints for everyone, the kids painted some more. I had also brought out a few plastic snacks I had on the counter. The kids painted until the paints melted. I left the paintings outside to dry. I forgot about them and they sat out over night, eek. The poster board was bent from the moisture. Sad face, I had to trash them. I had hoped to cut fun Halloween shapes out of it. But, maybe next time we paint.
