Have fun making your own magical glitter dust and fly like the fairies! Pink, blue, or purple, let the magic begin. Remember, think "Happy Thoughts!"

What is needed:

  • Salt
  • Food color
  • Zip lock baggie
  • Glitter
  • Marker
  • Ribbon
  • Self adhesive address label
  • Container (we used an empty spice container)
  • Optional: craft paint and brush

Place half cup of salt into a plastic resealable baggie. Six drops of food coloring were added to the salt. Mix the color by shaking and massaging the salt around the bag. (The kids loved this!) Once evenly distributed, leave the bag open for the salt to dry a bit while you finish the craft.

Optional: My girls didn’t like the red top of the spice container. So we painted it purple.

We created and decorated a "Fairy Dust" label then applied it onto the spice container.

Once the salt is dry (which took about 15 minutes), add a bit of glitter and mix. Transfer the "fairy dust" into the container.

Measure out a long length of ribbon. We cut ours long enough for the fairy dust container to rest just above her bellybutton.  Center the ribbon and tie around the neck of the spice container. Tie free ends together and place around your fairy's neck like a necklace.
