Salt Crystal Snowflake Craft

Pin It
Here's a great alternative for making snowflake that's also a science lesson.

Materials:

  • salt
  • water
  • pot
  • heat resistant cup
  • thick black paper or card stock(regular construction paper is too thin)
  • narrow paintbrushes

Directions:

  1. Before starting, talk about snowflakes and show them pictures of snowflake designs.
  2. Boil water in a pot or kettle and pour into a heat-resistant cup or mug.
  3. Add salt teaspoon by teaspoon and stir with a paintbrush until you make a super saturated solution and the salt doesn't dissolve any more.
  4. Paint dots and snowflake shapes with the paintbrush. Allow to dry overnight. See the salt crystals that grow.
