Salt Drawings

Mix a few drops of food coloring into a bowl of salt. Let the salt dry over night or spread it on a cookie sheet and place in a 350 degree oven for a few minutes.

Use a paintbrush or cotton swab to apply glue to a piece of construction paper.

Sprinkle the colored salt over the glue. Shake off the excess salt.

When the glue is completely dry, gently tap the paper to remove any loose salt.

Enjoy your bright, textured drawings.


  1. What a cool idea! I love how this is an inexpensive project with things found in the house. Awesome!

  2. This looks like a fun (and a little different) activity. Thanks for sharing.
