Homemade glitter. Mix 1/4 cup of salt with a 1/2 teaspoon of food coloring in a small bowl until the salt is uniformly colored. Spread the mixture out in an even layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven for ten minutes. Allow your homemade glitter to cool before using it.

Milk Art. All you need is milk, food coloring and dish soap. This year in Chemistry I got to test out this project, but my group did it wrong and it didn't come out right.
