Easy Peasy Glitter Jar

I love The Studio! It’s a treasure trove of DIY project ideas, many of which are easy enough for kids to do on their own with minimal help. When I took Anya to work with me on Thursday, we brought along some glitter glue and glitter. Since I had an empty jam jar at work, she made a glitter jar. She did all the steps by herself and I helped with opening the little bottles of glitter and filling the jar with hot water.

ta daa!

empty glitter bottles make great finger tips!

We actually had glitter glue and glitter in many different colours but Anya wanted green and only green. We also added some glow-in-the-dark glitter but that didn’t give us the expected effect because the glow-in-the-dark glitter is somewhat heavier than the normal glitter so it just sinks to the bottom rather quickly.

She had so much fun making this and we’ll probably make another but in a plastic jar so I don’t get so nervous when she plays with it.
