As this was the first time we had attempted salt painting at Oaklands, this activity was half experiment, half painting.
The first part of the activity was to cover the lines of a picture with glue, then spread salt over the glue and shake the excess salt from the picture.
The second part of the activity was to create our paints by adding a few drops of food colouring to water.
Our residents were then set to paint their salt pictures. Only a few drops of paint were needed to produce beautiful colourful pictures.
