Why Not Use Sequins Instead of Glitter Glue! For Kids Christmas Crafts

Using Glitter glue can be so frustrating! You gotta squeeze em like your life depends on it. Not fun for little kids! So I got some Sequins! The timing couldn't have been more right, since we had been doing various Christmas packs!

My 3 y.o. Carefully dotted glue over Christmas trees and wreath print outs and stuck red green and golden sparkles over them. No frustrations and a few afternoons well spent! All while humming various nursery rhymes.

(Have you known any other 3 year old who hums?!! Well this one is. A big time hummer!)

We loved using the 3 Dinosaur's Christmas PackReindeer Pack and Totschooling's Christmas Playdough Mats. The dot marker pages were especially useful. He painted the dots with q-tips/ear buds and/ or glued round sequins in each dot!

  2. I know exactly what you mean with the glitter glue, you shake, turn red, and a small dot slowly drips :) I like your idea.

  3. This is a great idea, and no glitter all through the house either.
