There is a reason I never log onto Pinterest. Everything on the entire site looks fantastic and I want to pin it, go home, and DO IT ALL.
Yesterday, my much-more-talented-than-me friend Stacy pinned something that showed up on Facebook. I happened to see it, and I thought, YES, I CAN DO THAT. How hard can it be? All I need is glitter, glycerin, and a peanut butter jar. THIS JUST MAKES SENSE.
I figured I could easily track down my ingredients at the local drugstore (blood pressure 130/76. score!). I did not find glitter, so I picked up glitter glue. I did not find an empty peanut butter jar, so I picked up two bottles of Evian. I did not find glycerin, so I picked up two marshmallow creme eggs. Put those aside for later.
Erma was sad to leave preschool that afternoon until I told her that WHEN WE GET HOME WE ARE MAKING GLITTER GLUE BOTTLES! (Try saying that three times fast.)
The making of the glitter glue bottles (potentially for toddler meditation, for reals, that’s the purported purpose of these things) took precedence over every other thing. As soon as we got home: “Let’s make glitter glue blottles!” So we drank a lot of water, and we were ready to go.
Note: I did not even remotely follow the blog in the Pin. Which…maybe was the problem, I don’t know.
Pick glitter glue color and squeeze into empty Evian bottle.
Pour hot water into Evian bottle; cap and shake.
Bottle looks completely stupid, so add some food coloring.
Thanks to letting preschooler add the food coloring, glitter is no longer visible. Add more glitter glue.
Still looks stupid. Add some dish washing soap.
Repeat process with second bottle. Make second bottle even stupider, if possible.
The front page of ye olde local newspaper was also about bottles today. A coincidence? I think not.
I think it’s time for the marshmallow eggs now.
