Pumpkin Salt Painting

Make creative and beautiful pumpkins to decorate your home for Autumn and Halloween with a combination of a painting and science activity.




What You’ll Need:

  • Watercolors

  • Iodized salt

  • Liquid glue

  • Construction paper





5 Easy Steps:

  • Begin by drawing a pumpkin on your construction paper

  • Squeeze glue along the lines of your drawing

  • Sprinkle a thick layer of salt on your drawing

  • Brush off excess salt

  • Wet your paintbrush and paint the salt delicately

Let dry and decorate around your home!



Teach your children that the salt absorbs the water in the watercolors through a chemical action leaving just the color pigments behind on your paper.
