Salt Painting – Valentine’s Day
Spread some love and colour. This creative activity helps your child develop pincer grip and hand-eye coordination. Once the artwork is complete, your child can share with a loved one on Valentine’s Day.
Paper (cardboard from cereal box)
- Table salt
4 mini bowls
Fill each small bowl with water and a few drops of food colouring and set aside.
Ask your child what they would like to draw. Then, using a pencil, have your child draw the design on the cardboard. Larger shapes work best for this activity.
3. Following the design, apply a generous amount of glue overtop of the pencil lines.
4. Pour salt over the glue. Shake off the excess.
5. Colour your art by taking the eye dropper tool and applying colour to all the salted areas of the painting.
6. Be sure to let the painting dry before hanging or placing upright.
