Now that it is hot, I LOVE using ICE.

This project came to me after this recipe for ‘Chalk Paint’.  Why not freeze the paint and see what happens?!?!

So we did.

I have to admit it didn’t turn out like I thought it would…

But it was a ton of fun. Messy fun, but fun none the less.



1/2 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup water

Food Coloring

Ice Cube Tray


Mix well and freeze!

Then play.




 Turns out when the ice begins melting, it is really just Oobleck. (That’s a strange solid/liquid mix that cornstarch and water makes. It is a really cool substance for kids to play with.)

Just as she was realizing some of her professional goals, she decided to give it all up for a family. Although Jennifer has lived in Miami and L.A., she has always called Nebraska home. She always knew she wanted to raise her children in the Midwest. Jennifer is now trying to find her way in a new world. She may be frenzied and frazzled sometimes, but she would not give up being a mom to her almost four year old and her almost two year old for anything.
