Your kids will not believe their eyes when you turn off the lights and reveal the glow of the Floating Fairies Glow Jar. Gorgeous glow in the dark crafts like this kids' craft project are one of the greatest ways to decorate for sleepovers, since the kids will have some light as they stay up and play all night. You can also make several of these Mason jar crafts and use them to add a little magic to summer nights in the back yard. This is the perfect craft for summer and fall when it's warm enough to spend the evenings outside looking at the stars with your children.

Pretty result. The chemicals are toxic and it is explained that the glow sticks are broken being held over or in the jar. This part would have to be done by an adult if little ones are involved of course. Another option might be to use day glo acrylic paints, which could be applied to the tulle or flicked inside using an old toothbrush to get the speckled effect. Add some glitter for more sparkle! I think the paint lasts longer and of course could be reapplied over time if needed.

A real good idea for a late night outside with a bunch of friends or for a party or even just to watch in your bedroom what a super cool project this floating fairies glow jar is. This would even be cool for an outdoor wedding centerpiece or even around the walkway. I am a little concerned about letting children handle it because of the chemicals in the glow sticks or the glass (which I did not know it had). How do you dispose of them when you are done since it has chemicals in them? Anyone know?

I love these! There's a lot of potential here with kid's parties and grown-up parties alike!

These jars would look wonderful as centerpieces on tables for a party in the backyard and also placed on the ground next to some plants for a soft glow in the yard! This is an idea I am passing to my friend who is planning a graduation party for her daughter!

Very Cool! I want to make these for each of my grands.... how long does the 'glow' last? The same as the bracelets.... a few hours?
