Watercolor & Salt

Your kid can paint watercolor on watercolor paper, and then sprinkle salt while the painting is still wet. Let it dry, and then gently brush the salt off.

Go Further:

Have your kiddo describe what they observe. What happened where the salt was? Why do you think it did that?   (The answer is that salt absorbs moisture, so it pulls the water towards itself, leaving more color around the salt after the water evaporates).
