Messy Mondays: Frozen Paint & Tongs

It's been hot, seriously hot, so our messy project this last week called for frozen paint. It also gave my boys a chance to use their tongs, which for some odd reason are their favorite toys. Sorry Toys R Us,  you just cannot compete with dollar store kitchen supplies.
Here's what we used:
1-  tongs, washable tempera paint, paper, water, a cup, a spoon, & a silicone ice cube tray
2- mix 1 part water with 2 parts paint
3- Pour paint in to tray
4- Put tray in freezer over night
And now for the fun...
They enjoyed this activity a lot and set up was super easy so we did it a couple times. It's a great activity for building their fine motor skills. Josiah also picked up on the "science" of color mixing and that little pieces melt much faster than big pieces. His favorite part, however, was dropping the pieces from up high.
Micah's favorite part...
Getting messy of course!  At least he only tasted the paint once - I thought for sure he'd think it was a popsicle.
