Salt and Glue Art with the kids has been on my list to do for sometime now.  We finally got around to trying it out with our homemade scented watercolors.  We love trying arts and crafts out at my house.  It is just one of the things that keeps us busy during our days.  It is even more special when I can turn art and craft time into one on one time with my boys.  That is what my oldest and I did this day.  We spent time painting together while the little ones napped.  I love these moments and hold them dear.

I set my son up with a salt and glue heart to paint.  This was our first time trying this art technique. He was excited to try it out.

Our set up was simple.  I had pre made the salted glue heart while he was sleeping.  I glued a heart outline on cardstock and sprinkled salt over it and left it to dry.  This is why I chose to do it without him.  He would not have wanted to wait for it to dry to paint it.

When he woke up the glue had dried.  I set the salt/glue heart out with the homemade watercolors for him to paint.  He got to watch the watercolors travel through the salt. He started tapping the salt with the watercolors to see what would happen over and over.  Each time the color expanded just a bit.  He also loved the cherry scented watercolors and kept telling me how good they smelled.  He wanted to know how I made them and said he really liked them.
