How to Make Glowing Pumpkin Jars

Materials
Note:  If you don't have pumpkin decals you can use craft foam and other art supplies.

Method
  • Start by carefully opening 1-2 glow sticks and emptying the contents into a glass jar.

  • You will need 1-2 glow sticks for each jack-o-lantern, depending on the size of the jar.
  • Once the glow sticks are added secure the lids tightly onto the jars.  
  • Then, have kids decorate the lanterns with stickers and craft supplies.  
  • We have used sticker decalscraft foamneon sharpiespuffy paint, and other supplies to decorate our jars.
