My 12 year old wanted this Coastal theme for her Firefly jar. If you read my Fun summer activity for young children article, you will remember the firefly jar activity. If you do not have the little bugs where you live, this craft should be in your to do list. Most people have the supply for this craft. Making it very cheap.
You will need
A Mason Jar,
3 Star fish,
Hot glue gun,
White pipe cleaner,
Glow in the dark paint,
Sea glass color paint
This is how you make the fireflies. Cut you parchment paper in the shape of a peanut.Twist your white pipe piece and wrap it around the smaller part. Paint with glow in the dark the tail part. Let dry.
She painted one star with the glow in the dark paint and the other with the sea glass color paint. Let dry.
To assemble. Place your sand, then hot glue your bugs on stick and inside of the jar. Add the stick.
Hot glue a piece of ribbon on the top of the jar to cover it and around the lid. Glue also the 3 star fish.
