cup of table salt, food coloring, container with lid, spoon, colored
sand, white glue, water, cookie sheet, paper plates, paint, brushes,
Pour salt into the container and add several drops of food coloring.
Stir until the salt is evenly colored. The more coloring you add, the
deeper the color of salt. Set the open container in a warm, dry place.
Let the salt dry by stirring damp salt to the top from time to time.
Mix 2 tablespoons of glue with 1 teaspoon of water together in a cup.
Use a pencil or marker to draw your design on the item you have chosen to
paint. Use a paintbrush to paint all areas where you want one color of
sand or salt to stick.
Use a spoon or your fingers to sprinkle the sand or salt over the glue.
Let it set for a few moments.
Gently turn the item over a tray or paper plate and tap to let the extra
sand/salt fall off. Set the item aside. Pour the extra sand or salt in
the tray back into the container of colored sand/salt.
Continue painting the glue, sprinkling the sand/salt and turning the item
over for each color until your sand painting is complete.
You can use colored salt or sand to decorate paper, picture frames, jars
or even pots!
