St. Patty's Day
RAINBOW Salt Art
Our family is always up for a bit of St. Patty's Day fun!
Well I have been notincing the past couple of years that we are seriously lacking in the Green Day decorations. Well I thought we needed a little bit of fun and family times, so I borrowed this cool salt art idea from the head teacher in the classroom I work in.
*Liquid white glue
*Small cups (preferrable disposable)
*A happy, smiling family
You will want to mix about 6 drops of food coloring to 1 Tablespoon of water. I made 6 different cups of colored water. I just did all the colors of the rainbow, except Indigo....poor Indigo! I just didn't feel like mixing the right shade of purple and blue. I know, I'm lazy.
Place your cardstock on top of your wax paper, an important step step if you don't want to color your table =)
Then make whatever design you want with your glue.
Place your glue covered cardstock on a cookie sheet and sprinkle heavily with salt.
Using the eye dropper, place drops of food coloring onto desired area. Don't use a ton, because it will spread throughout the salt!
Let dry overnight =)
Make an amazingly cool "whatever" with them!
I made a mobile for our kitchen.
