Tons of glitter to brighten a gloomy day! I totally asked for a huge mess with this project, but Reagan wanted glitter, so we glittered!!!

Glue ( I like clear washable glue)
Glitter
Paper
Something to pour excess glitter into- we used an old box

What To Do

Cover work area- this project can get messy!! Place a piece of paper in front of your child, give them a glue bottle and assist in squeezing the glue onto the paper. Show them how to move the glue bottle left, right, up and down their paper, while squeezing the bottle. This is when I talk with Reagan about the glue being sticky. I encourage her to touch the glue with one of her fingers, so that she can feel the texture and stickiness.

Show your child the different colors of glitter that you have and allow for them to select the color that they want to use. Guiding their hands at first, show them how to shake the glitter jar to completely cover their glue with glitter.

Assist your child, at first, in shaking the excess glitter off of their paper. We used an old box for our extra glitter.
