Need to squeeze in a handmade kids craft before Mother's Day? Here's an easy one that can use up a few of those recycled jars you've been saving!
- glass jar (we used some mason jars)
- Mod Podge (glossy)
- foam paint brush
- colored tissue paper cut into 1" squares (left over and recycled from birthday gifts)
As a former pre-school teacher I've done this craft with 2yr olds on up. Before we begin I always explain to them that these are glass jars and that they may break if we aren't careful with them. I then show them how to apply the Mod Podge "glue" to a section of the jar and then place a tissue paper square on and then let them go to town doing it themselves only helping when asked.
After the kids are finished with the jars I make sure the jar is coated in Mod Podge and allow them to dry over night. They next day they are ready to fill with flowers or you can place a tea light (I like to use the fake ones) inside as a luminary candle holder.
So easy and they turn out pretty cute!!
Here's a look back at at other Mother's Day crafts...
