We brought back and old favorite…but because my daughter is a bit older than when we first did it, she really enjoyed it more! This can be done indoors or out.
Salt (from a canister, you’ll need more than a few shakes from a shaker)
Liquid watercolors (I buy these from amazon)
Glue (pourable, not a glue stick)
Droppers for the liquid watercolors
Big sheet of paper
First let your child doodle the glue all over the page…then sprinkle the salt on it before it dries. Shake off any excess salt that isn’t stuck onto the glue. Then use the droppers and small amounts of watercolors and drop small amounts and watch it spread! Tons of fun, especially with different colors.
