Icy Color Painting

Fill an ice cube tray with water. Then add a drop or so of food coloring to each cube, creating a variety of colors. Put the tray into the freezer until frozen solid. Later, pop out the cubes onto a plate or in a large bowl. Give your child some white paper and gently rub the melting cubes on the paper to create beautiful watercolor masterpieces.
