Colour salt trays

Colour salt trays

This is a great craft activity for the kids to do when they are stuck inside on one of those rainy days. You could even make a game out of it and see who finds the most first!

What you need:

  • cooking salt
  • food dye
  • small shells or shapes
  • magnify glasses

Number of players:
no limit


Add food dye to the cooking salt and place in a flat tray to dry.

Once dry, hide different shapes or shells in salt.

Provide children with magnifying glasses to look and search for the objects you have hidden in the salt.

You can also try this with plastic bugs and toy spiders.
