Salt Painting

You will need:

  • Salt
  • PVA glue
  • Printable worksheets
  • Watercolour paints (home bargains)

I chose to print some colouring pages from twinkl to fit our caterpillar theme because our Insect Lore Caterpillars arrived this week.

This is a really simple idea and creates lovely image effects.


Paint a background colour with your water colours and then apply PVA glue generously.


Sprinkle salt all over your image like glitter. STEP THREE

Shake of excess salt and the picture is ready to decorate


Use a wet paintbrush loaded with watercolour paint to dab the salt and watch the colours spread

We ate strawberries whilst we painted in keeping with the very hungry caterpillar theme.
