Sparkle Paints

A very cool crafting recipe that I picked up somewhere. Make some Sparkle Paints together with your children, and then let them go to town with it, creating amazing Sparkle pictures, signs or designs.

Empty squeezable bottles (old school glue bottles are perfect)
Tempera Paint Powder

Mix equal amounts of flour, salt and water.

Divide mixture into the empty bottles.

Add a different color of tempera paint to each bottle, and shake them well.

To use:
Squeeze the paint onto paper, creating a design, word or picture. Let dry. When the paint is dry, the salt makes the picture sparkle.

Alternatively, you can brush the paints on instead of squeezing them.
