 I say it over and over I love when I find things both my boys can do together.  Ice cube painting is one.   It is easy and fun for both my toddler and preschooler.  They both enjoyed this sensory painting experience.

What you need: 

Ice cubes, water, food coloring-freeze over night.  Then you will need thick paper(we used poster board) and maybe some wipes or paper towel?

What to do:
 Prepare and freeze ice cubes over night.  The next day when ready get out ice cubes and put into bowl.  Get paper ready(we did this activity outside).  You may want to grab something to wipe up some of the meted ice.  I had paper towels handy.  This is a little messy but the boys came clean after a bath and their clothes came clean after spraying stain remover on them and washing.
What I did for my 11 mo old was cut up an old blanket and taped it to his highchair.  He can’t resist eating paper so this was the way to go for him.  He didn’t really make a picture more just playing with the ice cubes anyways.  But both of them (3yrs old and 11mo old) enjoyed this.
