Messy Friday: Glitter

Is there much messier than glitter? I mean really, it spills easily, and sticks to everything. Kids love it and parents/caregivers hate. Enough said. Want messy play: add glitter. That’s what I did.

All the kids in my care love playdough. Its nice to add new element to it, something different that they would never have thought of asking for. Today: muffin tins and paper liners. Make playdough muffins/cupcakes or regular play. I also being the crazy Momma added glitter.

Crazy yes, stupid no. I had some limits.

  • Hubby wasn’t home – he would go crazy with glitter every where and hate seeing it on the floor
  • I only gave them small amounts at a time

Austin has explored glitter before, but Brookland hadn’t. The glitter I had bought clearly stated that it was not for children 0-3. Discretion. Use. It. I watch my children. I talk to my children. I sit with them as they use it. I play with them.

Cute little toes, all covered in gold.


Austin had a little bit of each colour on each of her cupcakes.


I love the looks of concentration here.

In case you missed our last exploration with playdough, you can find it here, Playdough Ice Cream Parlor.
