So you decide to glitter up a little project but soon realize you are all out of the sparkly sensation! What do you do? Do you run out to your local craft store and pick up a few different colored bottles of beauty? No, you don’t have to! Here is a quick easy remedy for you (from my daughters kindergarten teacher).
1/2 cup of regular old table salt
6-7 drops of food coloring (you know you have some left over from Easter egg coloring, right?)
Add food color to salt adjusting to desired color shade. Cook in the microwave 1-2 minutes or you can also air dry (but it’s a lot faster in when you nuke it). To keep it from hardening, store it in an air-tight container.
The finished salt looks like brightly colored sand. Perfect for layered sand art (in a jar) or as an accent on art projects! You can also pour them into little tiny glass salt shakers for storage and they are easier for little fingers to use.
