What child doesn't love to craft and use glitter?  I know my girls LOVE doing arts and crafts projects, and are always asking for fun, new craft activity kits for me to buy for them to do.  While I know many parents are not fans of glitter -- I am still picking up a glitter bomb that went all over our living room last year, when my girls were crafting with their friends -- I wanted to share about Glitter Dots, from Crayola, which will let kids enjoy crafting with glitter, and not have parents shaking their heads wondering why they let them play with glitter with the messy clean up.

More about Crayola Glitter Dots:

Recently, I was sent a sampling of Glitter Dots kits from Crayola to share with my girls, and to review and feature in my holiday gift guide.  

Like most parents, I was hesitant with these kits as I saw all the glitter. But, after seeing the video I shared above showing Glitter Dots in action, and hearing from other parents whose kids love Glitter Dots from Crayola, I wanted to see how these new innovative glitter-infused dots stick to make sparkly designs.

My girls were all smiles when they saw the Glitter Dots sets,and couldn't wait to tear them open and get their crafting on.  With the holidays fast approaching, my girls are all about making handmade gifts for family and friends. When my oldest saw the Glitter Dots keychains box, she said she wanted to gift two out of the three keychains to her friends. She is a cat lover, so couldn't part with the super cute kitty keychain that comes with this 3-keychain set.

While the snow fell outside today, my girls sat at their crafting table creating sparkly keychains and sparkle signs to gift to their friends for the holidays.  

They spent a couple hours pushing and spreading out the glitter infused dots to add bursts of color and glitter to their DIY Glitter Dots creations. They kept stopping to show me their hands, as the glitter wasn't sticking to their hands.  It truly was amazing to see that with all the glitter that fills these dots, that they stay in place and don't get all over the place.  This was the first time I didn't have to pull out the hand vacuum when they were done crafting with glitter, to try and vacuum up.

And, the girls were all smiles while crafting, and once they were done and showing off of their new Glitter Dots creations.  Both of my girls agreed that Glitter Dots from Crayola are a fun and unique craft that they want to do more of. I told them that I would look to get them refill Glitter Dots, as well as the Glitter Dots Sparkle Station so that they can create more fun things with these glitter dots.  I loved learning that the Glitter Dots can also be added to paper, wood, felt, and other crafting materials, making this a fun craft accessory to have on hand when your kids want to add a little glitter or sparkle to a craft product they are working on.  I am thinking about getting plain wood ornaments from the craft store for the girls to add some color and sparkle to, with the Glitter Dots refill kits I just ordered from Amazon.  They will look cute shimmering and shining on the tree, with the tree lights bouncing off all that glitter, that stay puts!

If your kids are all about crafting and DIY arts and craft projects and LOVE glitter, then you will have to check out the new Glitter Dots line from Crayola.  They are all reasonable prices and available at major toy retailers, as well as at and through the Crayola website.  In addition to buying some more Glitter Dots refill packs and sets for my girls, I also picked up some more to gift to their friends and cousins.  And, when the parents look at me after seeing the glitter, I will have to share that the glitter stays put. They will just have to see it for themselves, to be amazed, like I was!  Now we can welcome glitter back into our houses in the form of Glitter Dots! :-)
