Body Glitter Recipe

Follow these simple directions and you can mix up a batch of body glitter gel. Make some for yourself or make it to give as a gift.

  • Age Guideline: 8 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

  • Aloe Vera Gel
  • Glitter
  • Food Coloring (optional)
  • Small container (recycle old makeup containers or 35mm film containers, or look in stores that carry beads, crafts, or fishing tackle)

Fill your container about 3/4 full with the Aloe Vera gel. If you are using food coloring, mix a few drops at a time in with your gel until you get the desired color. Stir in a sprinkling of glitter at a time to avoid clumps. Add as much or as little glitter as you like.

You can try larger glitter and even small shapes such as stars; or, for a more shimmering look, use fine glitter.
