This is a fun activity for the kids to play with. And especially if you don't have glitter on hand, you can use salt as a cheaper alternative and some water colors, or acrylic paint mixed with water.

This is not just for Halloween themes, you can make any painting/drawing with the glue.

Total Time: 20 minutes

Supplies:

  • card
  • acrylic paint
  • glue
  • salt
  • Q-tip

Steps:

  1. Use black construction paper. Or, if you don't have any on hand - paint a sturdy piece of paper (or card) with acrylic black paint. Allow to dry.

  3. Using liquid glue, draw your design. I went with a spiderweb.
  4. Place your painting in a shallow box, making this project less messy and have your child sprinkle salt all over.
  5. Shake off the remainder of the salt. This project can be left as is, but you can add color!
  6. Using watercolor or acrylic paint mix with water. Dab in a Q-tip and touch to the drawing and watch the salt change colors.
