Materials
White card
Coloured card
PVA glue
Glue spreader
Coloured glitter

Method
On a piece of coloured card, make a pattern with PVA glue. You'll get the best results if the glue is drizzled on and let your child do their own pattern. Glitter makes everything look good.

Add different coloured glitter to different parts of the card

Then tap off excess glitter. More glue can be added and the process repeated if there are areas not covered.

This can be done many times and you'll get great images each time. It's also quick and easy to do lots at once which is ideal if you need lots of cards
