Age Group: Kids Crafts
Project Type: Crafts
Petroleum Jelly a new unopened container
unsweetened Kool-Aid packets in various flavors (we used dark cherry, tropical punch, watermelon, and orange)
Edible glitter or edible glitter gelOptional
Small microwave safe bowl
Measuring cups and spoons
Lip gloss containers
Wash your hands with soap and water. Make sure all your spoons and bowls are clean and dry.
Measure 1/2 cup petroleum jelly into a microwave safe bowl.
Microwave jelly until just about melted. Keep an eye on it - we did 1 minute increments and it took about 2 minutes. Use the hot pads to carefully take the bowl out of microwave as it will be HOT. Place bowl on a hot pad on your work surface.
Stir melted petroleum jelly until it is well combined. Divide the jelly into the remaining 4 bowls.
Sprinkle a 1/2 teaspoon of Kool-Aid flavor into each bowl.
Add a pinch of sugar to each bowl. To make your lip gloss shimmer, add about a teaspoon of the edible glitter gel (in the color of your choice, optional). The finished lip gloss will have a little texture and shimmer due to the glitter!
Use a clean spoon to stir mixture together in each bowl.
Scoop 1 flavor mixture into each container. Tap container on your work surface to remove air bubbles and then put the lid on.
