Spider Web Salt Painting

Decorate your home for Halloween with creative, beautiful, and spooky spider webs using a great combination of a painting and science activity.



What You’ll Need:

  • Black and white watercolors

  • Iodized salt

  • Liquid glue

  • Construction paper




5 Easy Steps:

  • Begin by drawing a spider web on your construction paper

  • Squeeze glue along the lines of your drawing

  • Sprinkle a thick layer of salt on the glue

  • 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.


Happy Halloween!
