Help your little ones discover art and science with these painted salt snowflakes!*
- Thick, white cardstock
- Table salt (a lot)
- White glue
- Paint brush
- Liquid watercolor paint or food coloring
Step 1: Help your child create snowflake shapes with glue on the cardstock. You can either freehand them or draw a snowflake on the cardstock that your child can then trace with glue.
Step 2: Pour lots of salt over the glue snowflake.
Step 3: Let the salt sit for a minute and then dump the excess salt off of the cardstock.
Step 4: Dip your paintbrush into the watercolor or food coloring and then dab it onto the salted snowflake. Watch as the salt absorbs the color!
Step 5: Continue this process until your snowflake is colored in and enjoy your unique art!
