Festive Holiday Jars for the Fourth of July

This is always one of the most stressful times, as the school year winds down and parents realize that their kids will soon be home all day, every day. The pool is great and camps are fun, but on rainy days when you can’t play outside, what about some inexpensive crafts that keep kids happy and even help decorate the home?

These Festive Holiday Jars for the Fourth of July is a fun activity you can do with your kids, and it’s inexpensive as well.

Festive Holiday Jars for the Fourth of July:


– Mason style jar

– Epsom salt
– glossy acrylic paint (we recommend the colors red, white and blue)

– Pour the Epsom salt in a dish. Using the glue, draw a star on the jar.
– Press the star into the dish of salt while the glue is still wet. – – Carefully remove the jar and gently wipe away any excess glue.
– Let dry overnight.
– Paint the jar using two coats of paint if needed.
