We made salt glitter today! So fun!! Ok...here's the ingredients...are you ready??? It's really tricky (NOT...wait do people still say that??...hmmm...I'm totally dating myself right now)...anyways...here goes:
SALT (any kind..kosher or regular..plain..or iodized) :)
That's it!! Take 1/4 cup salt or adjust to however much you want and add a few drops of food coloring (at least 4 drops if it's 1/4 cup or more of salt). Stir it up and put it on a plate to spread it out in a thinner layer and then pop it in the microwave for 1 minute. Put a cup of water in the microwave with it to protect your microwave...not sure why, but my recipe said that so I'm repeating it here. :) Then you can put it in empty spice containers or condiment shakers (which I found at the 99 cent store for 99 cents..duh!). Then have your little ones go outside if you can't take a huge mess like me. :) Give 'em some glue sticks and paper and have them sprinkle the salt glitter to their hearts content! Make some pretty designs!
I'm saved, I am a full-time stepmother, I also have 2 biological children, I have ugly stuff in my past, but I am forgiven, I love my friends, I love God, I love my husband and my amazing children (all 3 of them), I love this Blog thing, I love to bake, hmmmm...there's lots more, but I'll stop there. :)
