Long, long ago in a galaxy far away…
I found this glitter jar idea and pinned it.
And then I tried it.
And now, I shall blog about it.
WHAT I LEARNED
*I originally made the jar with Batman (5) in mind because he has some sensory issues and is drawn to visual stimulation. I thought it would be good for calming him down when he’s worked up. Alas, it only holds his attention for approximately 13.2 seconds. If we’re lucky.
*Superman (who is 2) however, loves it.
*A little food coloring goes a long way. As you can see by our nearly black creation. Oops.
*You can’t use too much glitter. Trust me.
*A bit of cute paper and some glue can be a great way to cover things like “Salsa Verde 10/11” on used jar lids.
*I like it, but I won’t be making another one. Mostly, it just sits on the counter being ignored. Perhaps if I’d not been so heavy handed with the food coloring it would get more use.
