One of my favorite activities is easy DIY projects. I like projects that require materials already in my home. It is not practical for me to buy items for a project that I will use one time. If I purchase something for a project, it will have multiple uses. Today’s activity, Salt Art Painting, fits this criteria.
The items needed for the art project are…
This activity is a wonderful STEAM educator. Children will observe how salt melts ice. They can combine two colors to make another color. Also, they will see how water can change from a liquid to a solid when turning water into ice.
My son had fun doing the Salt Art Painting. He was amazed that he could create a rainbow before his eyes. This is a great project for preschoolers, kindergarten, and up. It is safe to say that your child may ask to do this activity again.
As a parent, I love that the set up and cleaning afterwards is quick and easy.
