Autumn Colors Water Jar
(Autumn Crafts for kids)

Supplies Needed:

jar(baby food jar or pickle jar etc.)
glitter or foil confetti(ex:confetti foil leaves) in Autumn colors(red, brown, orange etc.)
glue:clear silicone sealant(aquarium sealant)
tiny toy or greenery(optional)
florist clay(if using tiny toy or greenery)
distilled water or water that has been boiled and cooled

Adult help required with glueing and boiling water.

Fill jar up to 1/4 inch from the rim with water. Spoon in some glitter or confetti(not too much though). If you want to add something interesting to the jar though, such as a small toy or greenery, then you want to elevate the scene above the jar lid so it is in clear view. To do this, glue a plastic lid inside the jar lid or build up the area with a little extra florist clay. Be sure to leave the edges clear so you have room to screw on the lid. Seal the lid to the jar with a small amount of silicone sealant around the threads of the lid and close tightly. When the glue is dry, turn the jar upside down and watch your autumn leaves/colors fall. For further decoration you decorate the outside of the jar a bit in fall colors. For example, you could paint colored Autumn leaves around the outside of the jar or tie a ribbon or garland in autumn colors around the jar lid.
