Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? I love all the crafts with hearts, pinks and reds and lot’s of LOVE, they’re so fun! Well….I have a cute, easy, inexpensive, fun, perfect for little kiddos craft idea! This Salt Heart Painting activity is beautiful and so exciting to make! All you need is some basic art supplies and salt, that’s it! It literally took me less than 3 minutes to create two hearts for both of my kids, yes 3 minutes! It can’t get easier than this, but let me tell you, your little ones will love this painting experience!

Materials for salt painting tray:
-Cup with water
On the cardstock, draw a large heart with the liquid glue, filling the heart in. Sprinkle lots of salt over the glue and gently shake off excess. DO THIS STEP OVER THE SINK FOR EASY CLEAN UP! Let it dry (sometimes I pop it in the freezer if the kiddos can’t wait!).
Your set-up is done! Now it’s time for some painting! Let the kids dab gently a watered down paint color over the heart, the paint with spread beautifully blending all the colors together!
What is my child learning?
–Fine motor skills (holding the paint brush)
-Focus and concentration
