If you are looking for a simple art activity to do with the kids, this Dripping Salt Painting is perfect. We had some unexpected results with this dripping salt painting which I think turned out pretty cool. Judge for yourself. When you are done be sure to check out our Drip Watercolor Painting which is just as fun.
Dripping Salt Painting
Supplies you will need:
- Paper (white or black)
- Water mixed with food coloring (we made 4 colors)
- Droppers or pipettes
In the finished products below, you can see how the texture of the salt really comes through and leaves a trail even in the places where they had not glued. I am excited to try this again with liquid watercolors.
If you are looking more fun ways to engage your kids, I highly recommend KiwiCo. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo. Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution.
Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
