Instructions: Prepare paint the night before by pouring paint into ice cube trays. Let it freeze overnight. Begin the lesson by reading the book, Mouse Paint. These clever mice get into paint and find out that the paint color mixes when two or more paints are added. After reading, allow the children to paint with the frozen paint you have prepared on the paper provided. As it melts the children see how the colors mix. Also allows children to see a solid change state to a liquid.
