30-11-2011, 06:20 PM
I avoid it as much as possible all year, but at this time of year it just has to be used!

What am i talking about you ask.........



30-11-2011, 06:25 PM
We had the glitter glue out earlier... it went everywhere! :rolleyes:

I am not feeling strong enough for the glitter yet. I need to build up to it gently :laughing: :D

30-11-2011, 06:28 PM
Yes another glitter hater here. We made angels this morning and used sequins and tinsel but I just couldn't face the glitter.

30-11-2011, 06:34 PM
:laughing: We made Christmas cards today, didn't use any glitter whatsoever, but still ended up with it all over our faces!!! It must just be loose in the craft box!:laughing:

the glitter started here today too,, we made a advent chrismtas tree , cut a picture of the tree out and have printed of some pics of christmas ornaments , they gonna cut one out each day and colour then stick on the tree.

Why don't you all like glitter? :confused:
We've had it in our sand for a week or so now, and kids have it in the bits and pieces box year round.

I found glitter spray in Savers, so I thought that would be great, far less messy!!! Except my 20 year old son got hold of it and decided he would make the tree I have on the wall look frosty - got it everywhere!!! To be honest it does look nice and you don't find bits everywhere for weeks, just don't let a 20 year old loose with it!!!!!! :D

I have been doing Christmas activities this week and so far been glitter free.
Will no doubt have to get it down from the top cupboard at some point.
I don't know what it is about my floor but it stays on there for weeks!!!!

I have just read this thread out to my DH, it has been the only thing he has ever whinged about. Does not mind the general toy mess, the travel cot in our room, the pram in the hallway etc.

But the GLITTER he can't stand it, it gets all over the house:panic:

30-11-2011, 07:55 PM
OMG...what is wrong with you all :eek: :eek: :eek:

Glitter is fabulous! Barely a day goes by when we're not sprinkling it about. Parents are now used to having piles of glitter in their cars where half of it falls off on the way home :clapping: :laughing:

And children are regularly going home with sparkly hair or glittery clothes.

30-11-2011, 07:58 PM
Had to chuckle when I saw this post. I feel exactly the same. I hate the stuff. I do let them use it but it drives me insane. It hangs around for weeks.

Oh well...it's Christmas, bring on the glitter

30-11-2011, 07:59 PM
Hate Glitter, Hate Glitter, Hate Glitter ugh, ugh,ugh.:panic: cant stand that it doesnt stay in one place,(apart from glitter glue) gets every where and on everyone ugh!

In fact, I would put that as my signature, if I knew how to :laughing: :D

My carpet has been very sparkly since Monday - doesn't matter how many times I hoover some always escapes :rolleyes:

This topic comes up every Christmas - as does the sand debate in the summer :laughing:

I use glitter glue/paint for the littlies - mine are under 3s. Can't bare it over the carpets but like the sparkle.

30-11-2011, 09:33 PM
We've had the glitter out too. I now have a sparkly floor. I hate the stuff! :) :)

30-11-2011, 09:46 PM
Mine is lurking in the cupboard, we did have glitter trees today which went down very well.....I think I will have to get it out.

30-11-2011, 09:46 PM
Can I just say


Just love that qoute as its so true! the flippin stuff doesnt even go up the hoover properly, theres always a bit that lingers somewhere.

30-11-2011, 10:05 PM
We did glitter yesterday, luckily it was at the childminding group, so no mess for me:clapping: :clapping: or so I thought :rolleyes:

Put the stockings in the kitchen from the car and the hall was covered in glitter and how does it end up in babies nappies ????:panic
