Rosie and Jewel love making their own art supplies.
The process is fun, and we always manage to save a few bucks along the way.  Today, we tried to make glow-in-the-dark glitter.  The results were beyond cool!  If your kids love things that glow-in-the-dark they will love this project!

Glowing Glitter Recipe

Materials
Note:  A blacklight is optional but recommended for the best effect.  My girls love using these cool UV flashlights for our glowing activities.  We also have a blacklight fixture that we often use.

Method
  • Add the 1-2 cups of salt to a zip-seal bag, using 1 bag for each color of glitter that you wish to make. 
  • Add 1 tablespoon of neon paint to the bag(s).

  • Seal the bags tightly, and then have kids squeeze and mix them until the salt crystals are fully saturated in color.

  • Once all of the salt is colored open the bags and allow the salt to dry for 4-6 hours.

  • The salt may clump together but will easily break apart in your hands once it is dry.

That's it!  
Once dry, pour the glitter into craft jars or old glitter shakers & the fun can begin!

A Few Tips:  
  • Just as with regular glitter this homemade glitter sticks best to wet projects.  
  • Another fun way to use this glitter is to squeeze school glue onto paper, and then cover the glue in neon 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.
