Create Snowy Salt Paintings
If using regular watercolors is getting a little dry, here's a fun technique to liven things up: use salt to create a beautiful snow painting with unique crystal texture! All you need are crayons, table salt, and water to get started. When finished, your child will have a great snow picture that he can cut snow-flakes or designs from and hang as added decoration for the holiday season.
Note: Though the project calls for Epsom salt, table salt or rock salt can be used instead.
What You Need:
- Dark construction paper such as purple and blue
- 4 tablespoons Epsom salt
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) hot water
- Small cups or bowls
- Covered table
