As the ice melts, it creates a unique blend of colors. Leave the paper towels to dry and you have a colorful work of art.
What You'll Need:
- Several flavors of Kool-Aid (desired colors). You'll want to buy the cheap packets without sugar, not the canisters.
- Sugar (optional)
- Ice cube tray or small dixi cups with popsicle sticks
- Absorbant paper towels
To Create Kool-Aid Ice Paint:
- Mix packets of Kool-Aid with water. You can add the amount suggested on the package but I went with less. Less water gives a more vibrant color.
- You can add sugar (knowing the kids will eat it) but it may cause stickiness. I left the sugar out thinking they would taste the cubes and not want to eat them. I was wrong. Kids are not afraid of tart ice cubes!
- Pour mixture into ice cube trays or small dixi cups. You can add a popsicle stick, creating a handle for the paint. My group of kids could have cared less.
- Once frozen, pop those suckers out of the tray and enjoy the messy fun!
