Want to use glitter in a project, but can't find the stuff anywhere? No problem! This easy-to-make (and inexpensive) recipe offers a great substitute!
1/2 cup salt
5-8 drops food coloring
Mix salt with food coloring, adding one drop of coloring at a time until desired color is reached. Spread colored salt in a thin layer to air dry or microwave 1-2 minutes until moisture is evaporated.
If food coloring is not available, you may use watercolors (the more concentrated, the better), but you'll need to allow for longer drying times.
Either way, storage is a breeze....simply store each color of your dried salt glitter in a salt shaker! This makes the glitter easy for students to use while limiting the mess.
