Water color & salt paintings

My first graders experimented on watercolors. They’ve done some water color paintings before so to spice things up we did the blowing painting a while back and now we tried sprinkling salt on the wet canvas. Even my wildest students sat down and had a blast painting.


Just add color and some water (too little and the salt won’t stick), sprinkle salt, let it absorb the color, let the paintings dry and then brush off the dried salt.
