    I don’t have kids or regularly babysit, so I was flipping through these crafts in hope of finding something to give my mom new project ideas for her elementary school students. The Floating Fairies Glow Jar craft caught my eye immediately! Now while I’m a fully-functioning adult, I’ll admit that I haven’t completely left my childhood behind, but I’m glad I haven’t. Cultivating remnants of my childhood makes embracing glowing fairy jars so much easier and totally worth the Sunday morning excitement.

    These jars reminded me of the containers I used to fill with fireflies from my backyard in the late summer evenings of my youth. Those firefly lanterns have become a nostalgic icon of the freedom and joy of that time of my life, so I was pretty excited to make a more permanent, less cruel version.

    I found that you can do almost anything with these lantern jars and they always turn out cool. I tried using different materials in place of the tulle and different colored mason jars. My favorite was with a clear jar I filled with clear plastic (I used sandwich bags that don’t have a zip) and white glitter. I mixed in blue glow sticks and voilà, psychedelic fairy lights. The only drawback of this project is the dangerous broken glass inside the glow stick tubes. It’s probably more of an “adult supervision recommended” craft, but definitely worth the spectacular results.
