Easy Cleanup Sparkles
We’ve moved on from pine cones painted in Thanksgiving inspired fall colors to pine cones painted pink. Shiny, sparkly pink. Not one to squelch budding creativity, I mixed up some washable glue with paint, and the shiny part was accomplished.
But the sparkles? We have managed to go three and a half years without bringing glitter into the house. Chris has a slight glitter phobia (“It gets everywhere! You can never get it all off!”) that was cute and quirky in our early years together, but has become entirely impractical with an aspiring fairy princess daughter. Every other craft supply imaginable has been provided in abundance, but glitter has been quietly left out.
Holding my breath, I offered a bowl of kosher salt with a dash of pink sugar crystals mixed in. The verdict? Water soluble, and three year old approved. Maybe sheltering from the outside world is an okay pro to add to the homeschooling decision making list after all.
