Salt Painting

I’m always looking for new activities to do with the creative kids in my care. Salt Painting came to our summer boredom buster rescue! We already had all of the supplies in the playroom and kitchen pantry to make Salt Paintings. This is an inexpensive activity that will keep children that love crafts and painting busy for hours. It’s messy so be sure to protect your work surface with newspaper or waxed paper if you can’t do this outside.

You Will Need:

White Glue
Table Salt
Watercolor Paint
Cardstock Paper
Paint Brushes

What to Do:

1. Use white glue to draw a design or picture onto a piece of card stock. I like to cut small pieces that fit onto a paper plate.

2. Liberally sprinkle salt onto the glue.

3. Gently shake off onto the paper plate and set the plate aside.

4. Place your salt covered card stock onto a flat surface covered with newspaper or wax paper.

5. Use watercolor paints to gently paint onto the salt. You won’t need a lot of water. The more pigment color on the brush the better. Once finished, set aside to dry completely.
