You Will Need:
- Sandcastle molds
- 3 cups of salt
- 3 teaspoons of Water
- Liquid water colors or food coloring mixed with water
- Thin paint brushes and small eye droppers
Mix the salt and water well, until it appears damp and crumbly.
Pour it into the sandcastle mold a little bit at a time and press hard to compact it. Continue adding the salt mixture and press down until you get to the top.
Allow it to dry completely. (We left for one week based on our class schedule)
Flip it over carefully.
Paint it using watercolors or diluted food coloring using a paint brush or eye droppers. Be gentle and don’t paint over and over in the same spot. It will make the salt melt.
Once painted, allow the structure to dry another 12 hours.
