Salt Painting

Art ProjectsToddlers9 Comments

Henry and I experimented with glue, salt and food coloring.
I did not like this craft, until I framed it. There’s something about the frame that makes it look professional!
(okay, that may be an exaggeration)
Its really pretty easy and a toddler can definitely do it.
1) Paint some white school glue on your paper (or dump it like Henry did!)
2) Sprinkle with ordinary salt
3) Paint with food coloring!
I wasn’t actually sure if you’d end up seeing the glue when it dried. I guess the salt is what shows up in the end product.
I had added painters tape thinking it would add some fun to the final product. I thought Henry would cover the paper more than he did.
(I’ve been reusing baby food jars for painting lately and loving them)

    We're always looking for new ways to paint! And I agree on the frame, too. We just finished our basement and I've been framing some of their artwork for their play area. It's amazing how adorable it makes it look!
