Please do not panic! Call your doctor and ask for suggestions! I don't think you need to worry.

Hope all will go well.

  Hi  Chaplin,

As long as she/he has not had any vomitings or lose motions,  there is nothing to panic. However do consult your Ped as suggested by Shams.

Most  Art & Craft supplies need to adhere to a specific safety code for toxicity. They are generally non-toxic or mild irritants which is generally written on the tubes/bottles.  So please check out the label on tube/bottle first and take the glitter along with you when you visit Doc. 

But better be careful  next time never to leave such things within her/his reach. 

Take care,
