Dinosaur Nightlight

Dinosaur Nightlight
Dinosaur Nightlight

"Kids love dinosaurs, so putting together this dinosaur nightlight from a mason jar will be an especially fun project they can make! They will love knowing it’s right next to them while they sleep. This is a great way to foster your child’s imagination. They can create the scene inside their little night light world. Little plastic dinosaur toys are inexpensive and can often be found at dollar stores and big box department stores. Because the items inside the jar are not glued in place, you can rearrange your terrarium anytime you like."
