I’m not one for a lot of bling, but I am always looking for fun hands-on ways to get the kids interested in things.  This morning we made “Glitter Bags” for the younger kids.  The kids just write on them using their finger so they are very tactile and versatile.  We tested them out for spelling and math.  We made ours using large zip lock bags and glitter glue.  I had a bottle that cracked, so this was a timely project.  I’ve seen other examples on the Internet using glitter and hair gel too.
