Salty glue art requires only 2 ingredients and facilitates discussions about dimensions with older children. What does 3 dimensional mean? Are the lines of the salted glue art raised or smooth? For smaller children, this activity has a great sensory component with the sprinkling of the coarse salt.

Materials:

  • dark paper
  • school glue in a squeeze bottle
  • salt
  • a baking sheet or tray (optional) to contain the salt sprinkle mess

Instructions

    1. Doodle some designs and create some fun artwork on paper using a glue bottle to squeeze on the lines.


    2. Once you have created your artwork, sprinkle salt on top of the drawings.


    3. Shake off the excess salt on the artwork and set the paper aside and allow to dry!

    Now talk about your art!
