toasterQuestion. What do you do when your six year old wants to use glitter IMMEDIATELY and you don’t have any in the house? Make some!

Here is an easy recipe for homemade glitter – using salt! First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour either table or sea salt into a bowl. Add a few drops of food coloring and stir. Add more food coloring if needed.

Spread your “glitter salt” on a baking sheet and put it in the oven for ten minutes. Then take it out, carefully break up any clumps and let it cool. This glitter salt can be used for art, but can be used in cooking too. Just imagine green salt at Christmas, red salt on Valentine’s Day and salt glitter on your child’s artwork. How fun!
