Kids Art: Salt Sprinkled Painting

Kids Art: Salt Sprinkled Painting

This is a simple activity even a toddler can do. Simply brush the paper with inky diluted tempera paints or watercolors, sprinkle some common salt, allow to dry.

Items Used: Heavy-weight paper, paints, brush, salt

Water wash the paper before adding colors for a soft muted effect of blending the colors.

Try different size salt crystals like Rock salt, even Ice Cream salt to see the different effects.

  1. Those paintings are beautiful! I did this with my class today. It didn't turn out quite as cool as yours, but it was fun. Thanks for sharing the idea!
