Paper Plate Salt Art
Mark 9:50 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
- Elmer’s glue
- Food coloring
- Paint brushes
- Unwaxed paper plates
- Zip lock baggies
Pour half a cup of salt into four different baggies. Put a few drops of one color of food coloring in the first bag. Seal the baggie and gently shake to mix the coloring throughout the salt. Repeat the process with a different color in the other three bags.
Give each child a paper plate and a pencil. Have them draw a picture that has large open spaces.
Thin the glue with a little water. Have the child paint all the spaces that will be the same color with glue. Let the glue dry for a minute. Sprinkle on the first color of salt. After a couple of minutes shake off the excess into a trash container. Now, you are ready to do the next color. Repeat the process until the picture is done.
For those students who need a little help with the drawing, you could have some shapes available for them to trace.
