After my month long vacation visiting family, I’m ready and excited to get back to crafty with my kids! This one has been a hit! My four year old spent over an hour creating and reusing the salt. She kept saying, “Mom, how did you know to do this!” I think I made her “cool” list today! :-) I got this idea from a friend back when we made the Baby Food Jar Tea Lites.
To make the salt I put about 1/4 cup of salt in each container. Then I added food coloring to get the desired color that I wanted. It make take a minute, but keep stirring!
I then put paper on a cookie sheet, gave her some glue, and a paint brush to help move the glue and sand around in between pictures.
Of course she wanted her name on her paper, so I wrote it out for her. Then she had a great time spooning the salt on her name.
It turned out really cute. She said, “We will never throw this away, will we mom?!” I couldn’t tell if that was a statement or a question, either way, she likes it that much.
I thought it would be fun to put some of the salt in salt shakers to make it something my 20 month old could do as well. I didn’t try it yet because she was napping when we did this project.
