- Seal the bag and have kids mix the coloring into the salt. Rosie and Jewel had lots of fun squishing the bags to saturate the crystals in color
- Once the salt is fully saturated in color open the bags and leave the salt to dry in the bags
- Drying will take anywhere from a few hours to one day depending on how much glitter you are making. Once dry give the glitter to kids in bowls, salt shakers, or saved empty glitter shakers, and the fun and creating can begin!
A Few Tips: Just as with regular glitter, homemade glitter sticks to projects best when they are wet. You can buy food coloring, zip seal bags, and Epsom salt at the dollar store or Walmart. Another fun way to use this homemade glitter is to make fun designs on paper with glue and then cover them in the colorful glitter.
