homemade rocks and gems for kids
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Gotta love bright colors right?! We love liquid water colors and they did not fail us in this sensory activity. We made sparkly, shiny rocky gems and jewels for play and learning. Any project that turns into a mixing and pouring type of sensory activity is always a great hit.

You will need rock salt ( ice cream salt), liquid watercolors or food colors and glue for this project. { Use ice cream salt to make crystal play dough too}

Start off with colored rock salt. {Edit: after you color your rock salt please set them out to dry. I let them dry overnight. Here is a post by Two Daloo explaining the coloring process}
