Rainbow Salt Names

Watercolours and salt are a fun activity to investigate colour mixing and the unique way that salt absorbs water. The children outlined their names in glue...


...and sprinkled salt over the name.

When a brush saturated with watercolours gently touches the salt it is absorbed, colouring the salt beautifully! 

The names become rainbow-like and new shades are created as the colours mix together.

We even noticed math as the children created beautiful patterns in their work!
