1Mix equal parts of flour, salt, and water. Pour into plastic squeeze bottles such as those used for mustard and ketchup. Add food coloring for variety. Squeeze onto heavy construction paper or cardboard. The salt gives the designs a glistening quality when dry.
May want to remind children to make a design and not huge lakes of squeezy glitter.
Lakes of squeezy glitter take forever to dry.
2homemade snow paint
Homemade Snow Paint, ages one and up
Mix together 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt and 1/2 cup water.
Using a small sponge for a brush, paint snow pictures on black or dark blue construction paper. You can paint anything with a snow theme - snowmen, snowflakes, snow-covered mountains, snowy trees, etc. This paint gives a great three-dimensional effect. Let the picture dry thoroughly. You can also use regular paints on top of the snow paint after it dries. Try putting it into a squeeze bottle and "painting" pictures this way!
