I received two fabulous green Swiffer boxes at my front door, courtesy of Swiffer. I’m sharing my own opinions of Swiffer and was in no way swayed by the green box!
If you are a parent or have been around children for any amount of time, you know they’re messy. Everything kids do is messy, and I pretty much don’t save any Glitter Crafts for Kids that I come across because, well, I don’t want to be cleaning up glitter for the next 5 years. The idea of getting creative with glitter is awesome. I’m all for the creativity that a bottle of glue and a few jars of glitter can bring, but oh-my-heck, the glitter is everywhere and it lasts for days because I usually dread getting out the big vacuum so I get by with just wiping down the counter and hope it all goes away.
Time to break out the glitter and glue again with these Glitter Crafts for Kids, because thanks to Sarah Michelle Gellar and Swiffer, they’re letting parents everywhere say Yes To The Mess and embrace the creativity that can come with having fun and letting go. It will all be ok, because Swiffer can help you clean up the mess in a jiffy!
According to the second annual Swiffer Cleaning Index, while the majority (72%) of parents feel that letting kids make a mess helps encourage their creativity, nearly all (95%) have said “no” to their kids’ request because of the mess it could make.
See? There you go! Parents want the kids to be creative, and they want them to help clean up, they just need an easy way to clean up, right!? Enter Swiffer!
Swiffer is my best friend for cleaning up after glitter project residue that any of these Glitter Crafts for Kids will create!
Have the kids make their own Olympic Medals with lids and glitter!
Why not have Celebration Star Wands on hand for any occasion? I feel like a star wand next to my bed could make waking up more magical!
The kids are always gathering up sticks from the yard? Put them to good use and have the kiddos make Glittery Wizard Wands. Every kid should have their own Wizard Wand, c’mon!
The kids can make Glittery Fireworks with glue and glitter or you can go all kinds of fancy and buy them glitter glue and save a step! #momwin
Is it weird that I’d like to make my OWN set of Glitter Tube Bracelets and hide them from my 5 1/2 year old? They’re so simple and I just love them!
Who took my charger? You won’t have to ask that anymore, because once everyone in the family makes their own Glitter-ized chargers, you’ll know your son has your charger when you see the pink charger sparkling half way across the room!
Disco Heart Necklaces? Please, someone make these and bring them over to my house, because I just adore them!
Teenage girls would love to create their own Jar Candles and it’s easy with some paint and gold glitter. Easy peasy and so glamorous.

I got a fabulous surprise when the Swiffer Green boxes showed up at my door. Two green boxes filled with Swiffer goodness. I easily unpacked it all and got cleaning. I definitely skip my housework a lot but Swiffer makes cleaning fun. How is that even possible?
Not only did I get the excitement of a box full of fun Swiffer cleaning products, but I got a second box to give to another momma who loves to clean. When I showed up at her door with the green boxes, I felt like I was in a Swiffer commercial – placing it on her door and hiding around the corner to get her natural excitement reaction when she saw the green boxes. Pure Joy! Swiffer knows how to talk to a girl!
