Popsicle Painting Activity

Painting of any sort is usually always a big hit with children. It’s something about letting your mind be free and allowing the colors of the paint to choose its place. I recently ran across this cool idea of painting with popsicles. I thought it was a great idea because you could plan it as an activity for your children to learn about delayed gratification.
