Salty Sprinkles

Salty Sprinkles

To foster the glittering fad, which (for my child) stems from a love for shaking sprinkles of any kind, I came across an idea for making my own glitter from salt. It's not exactly the same as the wonderful shiny metallic stuff, but it fulfills the joy of shaking interest, it's always fun to play with a new material, and I'm endlessly fascinated by the process of making our own art supplies.
