Rainbow Fish

Colored Salt Style

After reading "Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister the boys and I decided to make some Rainbow Fish pictures today using colored salt.
The salt was very easy to color, I just put about a 1/4 of a cup in a sandwich size bag with 4-5 drops of food coloring mixed it together and poured it onto a paper plate to dry.
It makes a great alternative to colored sand which can become expensive if your project calls for mutiple colors.

We made the fish outside because of the mess factor and the boys had a great time.

Here you can see their finished pictures. As you can see they had a great time mixing all of the colors together!
