Glitter!

I let my kids use glitter. Straight up, spillable, sparkly, messy, shiny, dazzling glitter.

I know most parents these days think Glitter Glue is a godsend, and often, I would tend to agree. But, feeling festive and adventurous, I let my kids glob the white glue on cut-out stars and pour mountains of silver glitter on top. Their reaction? According to Fifi, "This is the greatest project I have ever done!"

I kept the dustbuster handy and always had the kids work on top of a piece of paper which I used to easily pour excess glitter back into the bottle. It was messy, to be sure. But usually the really fun things are.

And now we have a star-spangled front door just in time for the holiday!
