When I saw this salt painting activity on this blog I knew this was going to be really fun and kids would love it! I tried it out on my daughter and she thoroughly enjoyed it:) It is so simple to do and most everyone should have the necessary ingredients on hand. All you need is…
- Elmer’s School Glue
- table salt
- food coloring
- paint brush
- construction paper or cardstock
First, have them draw pictures on the construction paper or cardstock using the glue. I placed my paper on a cookie sheet to try to minimize the mess as much as possible. My 4 year old decided she didn’t love the drawing part so I did the last couple of pictures for her:)
Combine the food coloring and water in separate jars or bowls until you have created some colors you love, grab your paintbrush and get started! My daughter loved watching the colors spread across the salt by simply letting the water drip off the paintbrush.
The finished products!
After about an hour I convinced her we needed to stop and eat lunch…she seriously would have done this all day! We had a lot of fun and this has been one of our favorite activities for kids yet!
