Have your kids tried painting on salt and glue? If they haven’t, you may want to add it to your summer bucket list. Seriously…it is that fun! If you are looking simple kids art projects, then this is for you. I love that it only uses 3 ingredients, plus they are ones that I always have on hand. Read on for the full tutorial.
Today we revisited one of my very first posts…Raised Salt Painting. This was back before I really knew what I was doing, and when my mom was the only one reading my blog 😉
Painting on salt and glue is so cool, I can’t believe that it has taken us so long to try it again. If you haven’t tried it yet, you are going to love it!
My kids are always amazed by this simple technique and love watching the colors travel across their painting. The first time we played with this simple techniques, the kids drew simple designs. Lots of dots, squiggles and a few hearts. This time the kiddos were excited to create bugs. Love!
Raised Salt Painting:
- White School Glue
- Salt ~ we use regular table salt
- Sturdy board ~ we used matt board.
Super easy instructions…
Draw a simple design with glue on your board.
Cover the entire gluey picture with salt, shaking off the excess.
Gently touch a wet paintbrush to the salt and watch the colors travel across the painting.
