With summer in full swing, having easy, not-too-messy kids crafts in mind (with materials on-hand) is, for me, essential. Salt painting was one activity I’d been ruminating and it was as fun and engaging as I’d hoped. I particularly appreciate art activities that involve the children in multiple hands-on steps that they can do themselves. Throw in color, texture, and the fact that the only way to preserve this art project is through taking pictures (no storage dilemma!) and this activity was a total winner.
Once these punchy, colorful salt paintings dry to a certain point, they start to sort of disintegrate; they aren’t keep-able. Take pictures and enjoy the easy and complete cleanup. I loved this project.
Aren’t you excited to try it?
