We love to do kitchen crafts at our house. I found this little project over at Family Fun and decided we'd give it a try. So glad we did.
Here's what you'll need:
Rimmed baking sheet
Salt (lots of it)
Colored water (1 tablespoon of water to every five drops of food coloring)
First you'll want to get your colored water ready. We used blue, red and green.
Next, place your paper on the baking tray (this is just to keep things clean) and draw your design on with the glue. Then cover all that glue with lots and lots of salt. Make sure it's good and covered, then shake of the excess into the sink or trash.
Now use your dropper to add some color to your picture. Drop the colors along your design one drop at a time and watch as the color is absorbed by the salt and spreads along the lines.
Be sure to be watching when colors reach intersecting lines.
So much fun!
