Salt painting is such a fabulous process art activity. I love it on these fun patterned Easter eggs. Spring break was the perfect time to use the pastel liquid watercolors and my whole crew of 8 ages 2-8 years enjoyed the same project. Salt Painting Easter Egg Art creates lovely Easter themed art and incorporates some cool science and fine motor skills.
Salt Painting Easter Egg Art
For this activity you will need:
- Create an egg design with glue.
- Sprinkle with salt.
- Allow to dry.
- Using pipettes, drip liquid watercolors on the salt. Watch the salt absorb the paint.
Each child could design their own egg but some of my group is quite young. Also, prepping the activity saved us time.
Everyone’s design turned out awesome!
The colors dried lighter since we diluted the paints but they are beautiful.
If you haven’t tried salt painting yet, you must! Kids love it.
