How to make it
- Cover the painting table with newspaper to protect the surface from spills.
- Set out one cup per color of paint for each preschool student painter.
- Pour table salt into each dixie cup.
- Fill each cup one quarter of the way full of the salt.
- Pour the paint to fill the dixie cup the rest of the way.
- Pour only one color of paint into each cup.
- Use a wooden Popsicle stick to stir each mixture until the salt is totally incorporated into the paint.
- Give each preschool student painter another dixie cup filled with water so that the painter can clean the brush between colors.
- Allow the painters freedom to paint whatever they want, a picture or a design.
- Talk about what their picture is about.
- They should notice that the texture of the paint is a bit rougher than when they paint with regular and not sparkly salt paint.
- Allow the paintings to dry flat on the table.
- After they are completely dry, hang them up in a display in an area where the light hits them.
- The effect will be lovely and the children will be very satisfied with their accomplishments.
