So I put this post instead. Indoor activities for the little one- playing with salt!
Nowadays, we have chosen use sea salt for cooking. As sea salt is more expensive, we choose to buy normal table salt for this project.

Well, I tried to show little one how to write or draw in the salt.
|Writing with a chopstick|
|Writing with finger is apparently better than using the chopstick. PLaying with this reminds her of playing with sand.|
|Note the thicker strikes as compared to the thinner ones the chopsticks made?|
|Teaching her to make hand print. Pick up the salt with your fingers and drop it all onto the hand to be 'printed'|
|I help her to squeeze the glue She spread the salt and paint the whole thing..|
|Love the shimmering effect|
We would probably do the salt painting again. As for salt writing, probably it will be later when she has the interest to write.
Be warned, this activities can get quite messy.
