wintery salt painting

This project is intended for kids ages 3+. Salt and glue paintings are so much fun. Just draw your idea onto the paper, go over it with glue, add salt and you're ready to watch the magic happen when you add watercolours!
Step 1

Draw your idea out onto watercolour paper.

Step 2

Go over the drawing with glue, gently squeezing it from the bottle to follow your lines.

Step 3

Sprinkle salt over the glue and tap off the excess salt.

Step 4

Now, add some water to your watercolour paints with your paintbrush so that you make a puddle. Pick up some of the colour with your paintbrush, touch your brush to the salt/glue lines and watch as the paint wicks into the salt. Continue this technique for your entire painting.

Step 5

For white snow, simply add glue to the entire area and add salt. Let dry completely.
TIP: Some salt may fall off when it's dry, so tap it off over a trash can before handling.
