3D Salt Painting
A Thrifty Mom is one of my favorite YouTubers.
I am not quite as thrifty as she is but I respect someone who understands the value of a dollar and can make it go a long way.

She combines the two and comes up with 3D salt painting, a work of genius which costs very little but allows your little ones to express their inner Michelangelo.
We’d suggest that they start on pieces of card rather than the ceiling, though.
