Updated: Dec 29, 2021

Children and parents will create coloured salt by using salt and chalk, and fill the jar with layers of different coloured salt.

Skill Level: Easy Suitable For: 3 - 4 years old Estimated Time: 15 - 30 mins Environment: Indoors


  • Teaspoon

  • Straws

  • Ziplock bags

  • Scissors

  • Various food colouring

  • A pack of fine salt

  • Empty containers

Step 1:

Pour some salt into the ziplock bag.

Step 2:

Choose a food colouring that you would like to start first. Drop a few drops of the colouring into the bag and rub it with your fingers. Observe what happens to the salt. The salt has changed to the colour of the food colouring.

Step 3:

Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make more colours.

Step 4:

Once all the colours are ready, take the empty container and scoop in one of the coloured salts using the spoon. Do the same with the other coloured salts until you reach the brim. Secure the jar tightly with the lid and ensure that there is no gap. Congratulations, you have a jar filled with pretty swirls and colours!
