A. Materials you need

 

ice tray

View Amazon's Price

 

B. Set-up

 

*Use a cheese grater to make the sidewalk into powder form. Use about half a piece of sidewalk chalk of all the colors you want to do. Dump that into a measuring cup.

 

*Add in 2 tablespoons of corn starch and 4 tablespoons of water. Mix with a spoon! Dump the liquid into the ice tray. If you use half of a chalk piece, this will fill about 2 sections of the ice tray.

 

*Do this process for each color you want to use!  I placed half of a popsicle stick in each ice tray container, so it’s easier for the kids to hold onto, and it’s not as messy on their hands!

 

C. Activity

 

Pop the tray in the freezer and use it when it’s all ready!

 

ice chalk

 

 

*TIP*: Use a hose and spray down the area you are using the ice paint on first, so it glides easier for the kids. Also, spray down the area when you are done for easier clean-up! I have heard that it could potentially stain newer concrete areas, so don’t use it on those areas of your home!

Add a half cup of water to the cups and add a bunch of food coloring to each one. I added probably about 20-30 drops. The more you add the better results you will get.

 

We used the colors red, orange, yellow, green, and blue. I have tried this experiment before with purple and it doesn’t work.

 

Place a white flower in each cup. Let them sit in the cups for 24 hours. Check the progress every few hours to see the changes!

 

Once 24 hours is up, see how much the flowers have changed! This is a fun and easy experiment for kids!

 


Final Thoughts and Conclusions

 

It’s finally springtime! The season we all look forward to after a long winter.  We have so much fun planning fun and festive activities to do with the kids!

 

I hope you could find some spring activities for kids that you’ll try! I’d love to hear about some activities you have done at home with your kids to celebrate.

 

Let me know in the comments below some of your ideas! I’d also love to know what your favorite activity was that you saw in the article.

 

Happy Learning!
