Glitter Without the Mess!

Glitter. Is there any art supply more divisive among art teachers? Whether you love it or hate it, one thing remains true: If you use glitter you NEED a plan. Perhaps you’ve sworn off glitter forever after your experiment with that one second grade class. Perhaps you love it but your custodian has said, “NO MORE.” Maybe some of you out there have even experienced the dreaded consequences of glitter lung. I’m here today to help you make peace with glitter. You CAN do glitter without the mess. Watch the video to find out how easy it is!


Tell us, how do you stop the spread of glitter in your room?

Is there anyone out there who has found a way to let students use glitter themselves?
