Art is a very important part of learning and creative expression. This raised salt painting activity is a great DIY activity to try at home!

Materials needed:

  • Card stock 
  • Wet glue (Elmers is a good option) 
  • Table salt
  • Water colours
  • Paint brushes 


  1. Squeeze your glue design on your card stock.
  2. Sprinkle your design with salt until the glue is thoroughly covered. 
  3. Dip your paintbrush into your liquid watercolour paint and gently touch the salt covered glue lines.
  4. Watch the paint “magically” travel in both directions! 
  5. Let dry thoroughly! (Note: This may take a few days)

Have fun painting!
