Here’s another fun activity that I’ve been wanting to do and have finally got down to doing. I’m really proud of myself for having the courage to tackle that long to-do list recently! Check out our recent activities – fall-scented cloud dough, DIY cardboard mailbox, ice alphabet letters after this post, won’t you? 🙂
Now so basically, you’ll need to ‘draw’ with glue –
Sprinkle salt onto the glue and shake off the excess on a tray –
Using either a pipette or a paintbrush, drip some coloured water (I used food colouring mixed with water, but liquid tempera is fine too) onto the salt –
Then watch how the colours move along the salt trail and blend together!
I first saw this idea at One Perfect Day and Ness mentioned that because these paintings do not keep well (the salt will dry up and crumble), take lots of photos. And she was darn right – took lots of photos I did!
I simply loved the vibrant colours, and my girl loved how the colours blended together when they ‘met’. So much fun! Be armed with lots of salt and glue – your child will be asking to lots of paintings! By the way, we did this while my tot napped – my weak heart wouldn’t be able to handle the mess he’d make if we did this with him!
