Rainbow salt painting

We spent yesterday doing some salt painting. This is a really easy activity and nice to use for several ages.

It also looks so pretty when the colour runs along the salt.

To make your own you need:

Water colours or food colouring


  • First draw your image onto the paper.

  • Next trace over the image with glue.
  • Pour salt over the glue.

  • Use the water colours ( be sure to wet them quite a lot) and drip the colour onto the salt. You should notice how the colour spreads making the salt look like coloured crystals.

Have you tried this activity ? Did your children enjoy it?

I would love to share your children’s beautiful artworks so tag me on social media with the hashtag #FMmakeitmonday
