Hot summer days can be a challenge when you have a toddler or preschooler to keep busy all day.
So how can you spend time outside and stay cool on a hot summer day?
Try this ice painting toddler activity! It’s fun, cool, and taste-safe. Ice painting can be fun for all ages, not just toddlers and preschoolers.
I like to prep a few ice cubes to keep in the freezer so this activity is ready to go at any time.
