Today we made non-toxic glitter out of salt and food coloring.
I’ve had this pinned for several months and was excited to try it because my girls are constantly asking me for glitter to use on their art pages.
I wasn’t super impressed with this glitter, because it wasn’t sparkly – and that’s kind of what I love about glitter.
The girls didn’t complain, though, because they were allowed to use as much as they wanted and had a lot left over for further use.
It may not be quite as nice as regular glitter, but it’s a safe option for little kids to use, and it costs next to nothing!

Non-Toxic Salt Glitter

Mix 1/4 cup of salt and several drops of liquid food coloring into a bowl until well combined.

Spread on a foil-lined baking pan and bake for 10 minutes at 350.

Cool, then let the kids go crazy.
