Frozen Dye Art

All children love playing with, watching and experimenting with ice. Here is a 'STEAM' activity incorporating art and science. The children talked about water, ice, melting, pattern, design, colour, time, area....to name just a few concepts!! This is my favourite type of activity as the children all want to participate, explore, discuss and most importantly learn while playing and creating.

They loved it!!!

I froze small fish, sharks and whales in blue and green edicole dye.

 I used icy pole containers and put one, two or three sea creatures in each until the fins were sticking out the top. These were our handles.

The children painted with the frozen dye.

Once the dye had melted, the children played with the sea creatures in the fish bowl.

Have fun
