Sometimes, Betsy and Ramona just need a little glitter in their lives.
Sometimes, the activity in which they indulge during read-aloud time doesn't have to be educational, or have an end result to be displayed, or even mean anything.
Sometimes, all a girl needs is a table, some water, a measuring cup and a pretty bowl. Add a baggie full of multi-colored glitter, stir just so, and you have it: Glitter Soup.
Because, as Ramona said today, "A little glitter never hurt any table."
