Salty Snow Prints

I got this idea from Blissfully Domestic, and the children ABSOLUTLEY loved this activity. Many of the children didn't want to do anything else BUT this during our choice time today!!
Have the children draw a simple picture of their choice and then trace that picture with white glue. Make sure the paper is on some type of tray to catch the excess salt. The children can then spoon the salt onto their glue. Then simply dump the excess salt back into the bowl and VOILA - you've got yourself a beautiful Salty Snow Print!
The greatest thing about this project is that you probably have these simple ingredients on hand, HURRAY!!

I am always on the lookout for things to use in preschool at garage sales....which is where I got these trays - cookie sheets would work or any other type of flat surface with a lip!!
