So that picture that’s been going around on pinterest for the fairies in a jar recipe is, for lack of a nicer word, fake. I mean, I kinda knew deep down in my heart that the picture couldn’t be real. But the wide-eyed child in me was really hoping that it was. Here is the original picture (just a disclaimer: I could not find the real origin of this picture or who put it up).
The directions that came with this picture goes like this: Cut a glow stick and shake the contents into a jar. Add diamond glitter. Seal the top with a lid, shake and voila! Fairies in a jar.
Well I thought that this was a wonderful activity for the kids to do at Abram’s first birthday coming up in April, since it will be a neverland theme. I tested it out last night, and here were my results:
So clearly, it looks nothing like the first picture above. Nevertheless, it is still really cool and I plan on doing these at his birthday party. And at this point I don’t have a choice because I have a box full of glow sticks sitting on my couch. What’s great is that the kids get to take these home and use them as night lights for at least that night because they are premium glow sticks that last 12-18 hours. Oh yea, I went big.
