Use Chalk to Color Salt for Sand Art

A friend of mine recently showed me this cool trick for coloring regular table salt using pieces of sidewalk chalk.  The resulting tinted salt is perfect to use for any kind of layered sand art activities and it's definitely way less expensive than buying several bags of colored sand. 


Here's what you need:

Freezer bags are thicker and hold up better to the rubbing salt

* container (or two) of table salt

* several pieces of sidewalk chalk

* quart size freezer bags 








Here's what to do:


1.  Pour some salt in the freezer bag and add a piece of sidewalk chalk.


2.  With the bag sealed, rub the chalk against the salt in the bag until the chalk color begins to rub off. 


3.  Use a funnel to pour the colored salt into your sand art container.  Repeat the process with more salt and different colors of chalk until you have all the colors and layers you want.


That's it!  Look at these fun finished projects! 



The kids loved this little project ~ not only layering the colors like they've done before with sand, but also the process of making each color of salt.  I liked how inexpensive it was!  (less than $5 total ~ $1 for each container, $1 for a package of sidewalk chalk, and 75 cents for two containers of salt!)

    1. The effectiveness of IEEE Project Domains depends very much on the situation in which they are applied. In order to further improve IEEE Final Year Project Domains practices we need to explicitly describe and utilise our knowledge about software domains of software engineering Final Year Project Domains for CSE technologies. This paper suggests a modelling formalism for supporting systematic reuse of software engineering technologies during planning of software projects and improvement programmes in Final Year Project Centers in Chennai.

      Software management seeks for decision support to identify technologies like JavaScript that meet best the goals and characteristics of a software project or improvement programme. JavaScript Training in Chennai Accessible experiences and repositories that effectively guide that technology selection are still lacking.

      Aim of technology domain analysis is to describe the class of context situations (e.g., kinds of JavaScript software projects) in which a software engineering technology JavaScript Training in Chennai can be applied successfully

  8. This worked great! I was skeptical because it seemed too good to be true, but it was a great frustration-free activity for my 5 year old :) we changed it a bit by using the sand to do glue art on paper. Thank you for the idea!
