Recommended for ages 6 and up

2. This will start to color the salt. A little patience is needed. Continue until the color is as intense as you would like it to be.

3. Fill your glass now with the colored salts. This will create layers of different colors. If you would like to create patterns and designs, take a spoon end or a knitting needle and insert it in the glass and poke the colors down as desired. By moving the object around, you can create many interesting looks.
