Salt, Chalk & Popsicles

Every Wednesday, our local library will be doing activities for the kiddos as part of their Summer Reading Program. This past week they did sand art. I guess it's technically salt art?

We took salt and poured it on a paper plate.
Then took the big chunky sidewalk chalk and rubbed it on
the salt until it mixed with it and colored it.
Pretty technical stuff, I know.

Just like the colored sand, they layered their colored salt into plastic bottles.
The little girl missed out on this activity because she was at her aunt's.
I think we may buy the stuff and do this at home as well.
Just soooooo messy!

I love those little chubby fingers. He wants to do EVERYTHING himself.
And in the top right photo... just below this, look at the tongue.
He's concentrating.
