3D Salt Painting ~ Easy Crafts for Kids

My 5 year old and I made some fun salt paintings today. Salt painting are fun because they stick up off the page and have bold vibrant colors. You can drop the colors onto the salt and watch it follow the path, such a fun way to make a pretty picture. PLUS they are budget friendly and FAST to make… two things that are important for me, that way I don’t feel bad when I toss this in the trash after it has been proudly displayed in our house for a few days.

To make these you will need

  • Cardboard or poster board (thick paper plates work well too)
  • Elmers school glue
  • Table salt
  • Food coloring (diluted with water)
  • Eye dropper
  • Little hands ready to make a project

Draw your image on the cardboard, make sure some of the lines overlap so the color has a path to follow. Cover with salt, tap off the extra salt and  set aside to dry. In small bowl drop a few drops of food color, then dilute it with water to thin down the color.  Use an eye dropper to suck up some color and drop it on the salt. Watch it follow the salt lines and make a beautiful picture.
