 Fall Leaf Salt Art – How to:

This time we are going to take the cut-out and place it flat on the table. From there take your glue and go all around the edges as well as the black lines inside of your paper leaf. Sprinkle the salt over top of the spots with glue. In a pipette combine paint and just a little bit of water (just so that it’s thin enough to go through the pipette) and drip the mixture over the salt and glue. Be sure to use multiple colors to mimic the gorgeous fall foliage outside!
Let kids create as many or as few as they want. It’s a fun little science experiment to have on hand for rainy days or lessons on changing seasons.
