Absorbing Art

For this you need: poster board, food coloring, containers, plastic silverware, water, glue,scissors, salt and a rimmed cookie sheet.

Our poster board was too big so we cut it in half to fit on our cookie sheet

Put a few drops of food coloring in your the containers...

Fill your containers half way up with water...

Have your child draw a design with the glue on your poster board...

Cover the glue with the salt..
Shake off all the excess salt...

Have your child use the spoons/forks to drip the colored water on the salt and glue mixture
[If your child is old enough an eye dropper will work better then the spoons but we would have just squeezed the whole thing out on one spot] 

As the salt absorbs the colored water it will move down the glue lines and create a tye dyed look :)

This idea is from
