Now this was a lot of fun!  I have seen salt painting pop up across the blog world on many occasions and decided that we had best give it a try.

We used some firm cream cardboard and a glue stick to help the salt adhere to the surface.  The children spread salt onto their cardboard using a spoon and gave it a shake to remove any excess.

Then, using their favourite ‘potion’ bottles, the children began experimenting and exploring the reaction between the salt and coloured water droplets.

As we know, it is really is ALL about the process, BUT gosh these final works of art are truly spectacular!

Don’t you agree! 🙂

    I love the work and the result…I also forgot all about this and I will do that with my kids asap…!!! Thanx for sharing! Peace from Switzerland Carolin

  5. I’m going to have to give this a go with the kids Karen – they go pretty nuts for anything with an eye dropper and paint 🙂

  6. Christie, Carolin and Jenny… enjoy! You are so right there Jenny, I think eye-droppers have magical powers!


  7. How beautiful! I love this idea, the artwork looks so tactile as well as colourful.

  8. How wonderful & full of salty goodness too! All you need is the vinegar.

  9. Just wondering what was in the magic potion? I would love to do this with my kids and also send it to the headstart with my youngest for them to do. Thank you!

    • Just water and coloured dye Tiffany! The ‘magic’ element is more within our ‘imagination’! Have fun with it and please let me know how it goes! 🙂
