Glue--Salt--and Watercolor Art

 I don't know how we missed this art project...but kids number 8, 9 and 10 got to enjoy it.
It's very simple but I just loved the results. 

 We made designs with white glue and then liberally sprinkled salt over the glue.

Some kids were more liberal with the salt than others...pour the excess salt off of the glue.
We then used liquid watercolors to "paint" the salt.  Really, you just need to touch the paintbrush with paint onto the salt
 It was something we had never done before, and it was fun to see what the paint would do on the salt.

Luke was very patient with his intricate design.
 Kimberly's pretty flower.
 Grace was in the Olympic mood...
After art, Kimberly made us delicious chocolate chip cookie bars with an Olympic flair.
