Glow in the Dark & Neon Glitter
Neon Glitter Recipe (affiliate links provided)
Add the desired amount of salt to each zip seal bag, one bag for each color of glitter you wish to make. Squirt in a few drops of glow in the dark or neon paint. We used both glow in the dark and neon paint to give us a rainbow of glitter colors. Seal the bags and have kids squeeze and mix the contents until the salt crystals are saturated in color
Once all of the salt is colored open the bags and pour the colored salts on a cookie sheet or similar to dry. The salt may clump together but will easily break apart in your hands.
That's it! Once dry pour the glitter into salt shakers or old glitter shakers, and the fun and creating can begin!
Rosie and Jewel love creating glow in the dark art, and this homemade glitter has really added to their fun. For lots more glow in the dark PLAY activities visit our glowing play collection.
A Few Tips: Just as with regular glitter this homemade glitter sticks best to wet projects. Another fun way to use this glitter is squeeze school glue onto paper and then cover the glue in the colorful glitter to make art. We used Epsom salt because it is a small grain, naturally sparkly salt. You can find Epsom salt at most stores or online here. The glowing paint we use can be found online here.
