DIY Glow Firefly Jars on SPLURGE! Friday

Happy Friday Dream Team! There is nothing that gives you that feels more like summer than the sight of fireflies! If you are like us here at Teen with a Dream headquarters, these beautiful bugs are not native to our Colorado state--so we are going to create our very own!

These D.I.Y. Glow Firefly Jars are a great craft for you and the kids! Note: This craft can get a little messy so be prepared!

What you will need:

  • Glass jar
  • Glow sticks (you can get them at the dollar store)
  • Sprinkle Glitter 
  • Rubber Gloves to protect your hands
  • Scissors

  1. Use scissors to cut the ends off the glow sticks....This is the messy part-so use caution! 
  2. Open your glass jar and shake the opened glow sticks into the jar. 
  3. A tip for getting that splatter effect comes from banging it against the sides of the jar
  4. Add in some of your sprinkle glitter into the jar, trying to get it to stick on the sides over the glowstick fluid.
  5. Tighten the lid, if you have really little ones around the house you may consider gluing it shut
  6. The average lifespan of these jars is around 6-8 hours so plan accordingly:)
