I am always looking for fun crafts to do with my son as well as with his class. Glitter can get so pricey and where I live if Walmart does not have it… You most likely will not get it. I am finding it is harder to find different color options for glitter. Did you know you can make glitter with basic Table Salt and Food Coloring?? How awesome is that!
Tools needed for this project
1/4 cup of salt
1/2 teaspoon of food coloring
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees.
Mix 1/4 cup of salt with a 1/2 teaspoon of food coloring in a small bowl until the salt is uniformly colored.
Spread the mixture out in an even layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Bake in the oven for ten minutes. Allow your homemade glitter to cool before using it.
You may also store it in an air tight container for several months.
This glitter can be used for almost any type of project and may even be mixed with glue for special crafts.
