Fireworks – Raised Salt Painting

This is a simple art activity, greatly enjoyed by kids for its uniqueness. Perfect to brighten up any day. I checked this on Pinterest and wanted to try our version of it. Its really exciting to see how the colors spread along the salt line. Its one of those process art activities that you can do in so many different ways. The end results never fail to impress 😀

What you need

  • White Glue
  • Salt
  • Food Color / Water Color
  • Water dropper
  • Construction paper

How to

  • Place the contruction paper on a tray ( to avoid spills) and draw any design onto it using the glue. We did fireworks today- july longweekend special 🎉
  • You could also use paper plates for your art work.. That works well too.
  • Now, sprinkle the salt over. Take care to cover the glue and dust off excess salt. You can reuse the salt to create more drawings.
  • Mix the food colouring in water and use the dropper to color your art. Just a few drops at each point. Watch the color spread along the salt. You could also use water colors with paint brushes.

The end product will look fantastic.. The salt will crystalise & sparkle. Your kids will want to do more.. Also, dont forget to take a picture because the salt will fall off the paper as it dries.
