Salt Painting

After last weeks sucess with the shaving foam E was keen to do more art that involved her having more control over her materials (ie adding food colouring or squeezing out paint) .. so today me and E salt painted as inspired by

First using squeezy glue E made some wiggle lines (this was the bit she enjoyed the most). She needed a steady hand to keep the glue coming out. Next she enjoyed covering it with salt and shaking the excess off into the bowl. Then having diluted some ready-mix paint with water, using a thin paint brush, she touched the salt with it. The colour ran along the salt trails - she was fascinated with how it spread out. And then because she is 3 - she then painted all over it "because I love painting Mummy" - and who can argue with that :).
