How we did it:

Materials List

  1. jar (1)
  2. glow in the dark paint
  1. A jar or any glass container will work for this craft along with glow in the dark paint found at a craft store.

  2. Squeeze dots of glow in the dark paint onto the sides and bottom of your jar. You could also dab it on with a Q tip.

  3. You can decorate one jar to use for a nightlight or several jars to use for an outdoor decoration. I think these look beautiful lining a sidewalk for a party!

  4. Once the paint dries it is ready.

  5. The "fireflies" will recharge themselves in the light and glow each night for Summer fun all year long.
