Salt and Glue Heart Art
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.
What we used:
Homemade scented watercolors
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.
Maybe you and your kids can enjoy this too.
