We've done salt painting once before, and the girls both loved it.  They jumped at the chance to apply the same technique to snowflakes!  It was really fun to watch the colors spread through the salty crystals, and there is plenty of opportunity to work on fine motor skills.   Salt Painted Snowflakes are a great project to tackle on a cold winter day!

Gather Materials


For this project you need cardstock, a pencil, school glue, table salt, liquid watercolors, and an eye dropper.

Draw Snowflakes

Draw simple snowflakes on your cardstock.  For my 6-year-old, I drew the initial six-sided star bursts and then let her embellish them from there.  She drew fronds, circles, and other designs.  The designs shouldn't be too complicated, since you'll need to go over them in glue.

Add Glue And Salt

Trace over the designs with glue.  Immediately sprinkle or pour table salt on top of the wet glue.  Put some kind of mat or paper underneath so that you can collect the excess salt and pour it back into the container (we keep a separate container of salt for crafting).  Set aside to dry.

Paint With Watercolors

Let the salted snowflakes dry overnight.  Prepare liquid watercolors - I made purple and 2 shades of blue.  Show your child how to use an eyedropper to gently drop colors onto the snowflakes.

The colors will be very rich and vibrant when the paint is still wet, and will fade as it dries.
