For our craft, I drew a simple snowflake design on construction paper and Drew traced it with glue.
We sprinkled coarse salt over the glue and shook off the excess. They were so much fun that I made some too.
Then a few days later, I saw this cool color web activity over at Tot Treasures. We made another batch of snowflakes and then used an eyedropper to drop some colored water (just food coloring and water) onto the end of each spoke (don't know what else to call it) and watched as the color "crawled" along the salt line. It was really cool! (This worked well on poster board because it didn't soak up as much water as the paper did.)
Usually, Lainey would rather color with her markers than do a more structured craft project, but she got in on the action this time. As you can see, she is loyal to the color red. Very loyal.
For this one, I dropped food coloring directly onto the salt:
And, of course, Drew had to do his beloved D!
