Step 6

Get your paint on!

I used a baking tray & blue tacked down some paper for the kids to create on! I got them to use tongs to move the ice around the paper to stop their hands from getting stained. You could also do this on the cement outside too (although I’m not too sure on the stain factor – maybe do this at the neighbours house lol!)
