The kids really enjoyed doing this, and we've done it a few times since. It's a great way to use up the pile of recyclables I have reserved for craft projects, and great hand eye coordination, and fine motor...but don't tell the kids that they're benefiting from it ;)
This is a super simple project, and lots of fun, and I think they looked pretty on my table too! I used spice jars for these too, only these are glass, and I don't use them anymore. I think I'll switch them out for various holidays!
1.) Clean jar:
2.) Epsom Salts:
3.) Divide among containers for coloring (I used baby food containers)
4.) Add food coloring:
5.) Put the lid on, and shake (the kids loved this part)
6.) Layer colors as desired into jars, I used formula scoops (thanks, Anna for having a baby!)
7.) Pop the lids back on and store the rest for later!
Put the lids on the jars, add a pretty ribbon, if you so desire, and admire your work!
