Ice Pencils

Another one from my childrens art and craft supplies series. You don’t want to eat these ones!!!

These are lots of fun in summer. All you need is some concrete and an imagination. My boys are having a ball with these today. Apparently my drawings weren’t cool though!

All you need to do is add 250g of cornflour and 500g water to the tmx bowl. Blitz on speed 4 for 30 secs. Pour into icey pole moulds. Add a few drops of food dye to each hole and mix with a skewer. Freeze for at least 6 hours.

Notes:

  • When playing with them do a spot check just to make sure it doesn’t stain your concrete. Mine is fine but it’s best to mention this.
  • You may need a cup of water near by to dunk the ice pencil in just to wet it to draw if it’s not a hot enough day and it’s not melting quick enough.
  • I do some in ice cube trays as well.
  • This makes approximately 8 ice pencils.
