Freeze paint in an ice cube tray to make little frozen paint popsicles.
Fill each section of an ice cube tray about halfway full of washable paint. Top off each section with a little bit of water and gently stir to combine. Next, cover the ice cube tray with aluminum foil and use a knife to make a slit in the aluminum foil in each section of the ice cube tray. Place a craft stick in each slit so it stands upright (you can also cut the craft sticks in half if you’d like). Freeze for several hours or overnight.
Once you’re ready to paint, roll out a strip of easel paper onto the floor and secure it with painter’s tape. Remove the frozen paint from the ice cube tray and place it on a plate with a small amount of warm water to help the paint start melting. Grab a frozen paint cube and start painting!
