Colored Salt Hearts

Things have been very busy here at my house, so I haven't been posting nearly as much as I'd like.  That's why I'm thrilled to have a really neat guest poster here today to share a fun little craft that's just perfect for Valentine's Day.

I'm Tricia from Two Big Two Little, where I share crafts and activities that I do with my children. My kids range in age from 1 to 15, so we usually have a variety of end results to everything.   I'm very excited to be guest posting here at Come Together Kids today.Coloured Salt Hearts
Quite a while ago I saw a pin on Pinterest for Coloured Salt Glitter. I thought it would be great to be able to make my own glitter. We love glitter around here, but I get frustrated when I end up cleaning more of it up than what gets used. I finally got around to trying it out. While it certainly didn't make glitter, it does make very pretty coloured salt. To make the coloured salt, put some salt in a ziploc bag, put in a few drops of food colouring or liquid water colours and mix well. Spread the salt evenly on a cookie sheet. I put it on some waxed paper to keep the colours separate.Then bake in the oven for about ten minutes at 350 degrees. You can also let it air dry. I think that as long as you used food colouring to colour the salt, the salt would still be edible. Wouldn't that make some neat looking food?

 I had bought a few salt shakers from the dollar store to hold the coloured salt. As I wasn't sure how this would turn out, I didn't make much of each colour.

I set these out for Sammie along with some glue and foam hearts.  I showed her how the salt would stick to the glue and make pretty pictures. She immediately tried it out for herself. She asked for a popsicle stick to help spread the glue all over the heart.

She started shaking salt like crazy all over her heart, using a bit of all of the colours.
I highly recommend doing this craft on a tray of some sort, so that any extra salt can be collected and reused or thrown out when your kids are done.

When the first one was all covered with salt, she started another one. For this one, she drew with the glue and then covered it with the salt.

She ended up making quite a few of these and Maddie ended up joining in to make a couple of them. Coloured Salt Hearts

 We have found that these do not keep very well, as the salt will start to come off as the glue dries. It will also rub off if touched. So you might to warn your child before hand that this will not be a keeper craft. Be sure to take lots of pictures if they would like to be able to keep them. The girls really liked using the coloured salt to make this colourful hearts. I need to make more coloured salt now lol. I can also think of lots more ideas to use the coloured salt for. Watch for more posts to come on Two Big Two Little that will use the coloured salt :)



Tricia is a stay at home mom to 4 great kids, two big kids aged 15 & 13 and two little kids aged 4 and 1. She shares craft, activities and some DIY posts that she does mainly with her girls, one big and one little, although every once in a while the big and little boys join in on the fun :) Her blog is Two Big Two Little and you can also find her at her Facebook page, and Pinterest boards. She is also a newcomer to Twitter

Thanks so much for sharing, Tricia!  I'd seen the same idea on Pinterest and wasn't sure how it would turn out.  Thank you for giving it a test run and showing the fun your little ones had with the project.

  2. These are such a good idea. My daughter and I made colored salt and used it in a diorama as sand for a school project, but I absolutely love all these colors and using 'em to decorate!
