Our temps dropped yesterday from the upper 60s to the 30s. It seems winter is on its way!
In honor of the colder weather, we painted with ice cubes today. Just place a piece of paper in a 9x13 pan, dab on some paint, and drop in a melty ice cube.
A didn't like touching the cold ice, so she used a spoon to push it around the paper, spreading paint as it went.
In the end we had a colorful and abstract work of art. I had planned on using different shades of blue (for ice), but A insisted on the yellow. It's a cheery addition to my refrigerator door!
