Materials Needed:

*Note* (You can use Dr.Teal's Epsom Salt Soaking Solution or you can you other Epsom Salts of your choice!)

Step 2: It's Pouring Time!

Pour Epsom Salts into a Ziploc bag then chose 1 Food coloring color you would like to make glitter then just add a few drops of it in the bag.

Step 3: Seal It!

Seal the bag then squish it until all of the color is distributed evenly.

Leave the bag open to dry over night and the next day you will have home made glitter!

You can also make other colors with your food coloring that way your glitter will be extra special! (Meaning if you mix the red and blue you will get purple and etc;)
