Raised Saltwork


You can't go wrong with glue and food colouring!
O loves a messy project, but even more so, art supplies that are new to her!
We don't often bring out plain old white glue, so this was a welcome part of the day!

You could use sand instead of salt http://tinkerlab.com/creative-table-glue-sand/, but for the science component of this project, salt is a clearer medium to watch the food colouring work it's magic!


I attempted to emphasize how the results would be clearer if glue was drawn in delicate lines (rather than giant globs) O quickly taught herself how to lift and release the squeeze, so she could write her name!


Eye droppers are another winner in our house!
As soon as you drop some colour onto the salt, it spreads in all directions of the lines. Lovely!!
