10 EasyCrafts for Kids

Jar Luminaries

Any craft that involves recycling is a great one in our book. This one turns old glass jars into shimmering luminaries. Wash and dry some clear glass jars, and cut lengths of aluminum foil to wrap around the inside. Then have your kids create a design by punching holes through the foil (of course, you might have to do some punching if the designers aren't old enough to handle it). Secure the foil inside the jar with some tape, drop a tea light into the jar and voila! A beautiful glowing light.
