Rainbow Ice Chalk

This spring has had such wonderful weather that we have been spending much of the time outside. It is always fun to take art outside so I made some rainbow ice chalk for us to colour the patio in.

Make sure you follow my outside activities on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make rainbow ice chalk you will need:

  • 1 part corn flour
  • 1 part water
  • food colouring
  • Mould
  • Craft stick
  • 2 measuring cups

I used 1 cup of corn flour and 1 cup of water to make our rainbow ice chalk. It was the perfect amount for us.

Mix the batch together in one measuring jug, then pour a little bit into a second jug. Add your first colour and pour it into your moulds. Place this in the freezer and wait for it to completely freeze. This took about 2 hours. When the first layer is set, repeat the process with the second colour. Don’t forget to put your craft stick in during the 3rd or 4th layer (depending on how thick they are).

It is a faff to do, and it took me about 2 days to complete. Mainly because I kept forgetting and getting distract by other things.

When they were finally ready BB and I had fun colouring in the patio. He enjoyed how the colours merged together, and how bits that fell off melted.

As it is corn flour it will eventually come off with rain, so you shouldn’t have to worry about it staining the pavement.
