Firefly Jar Craft for Mom’s

Mom’s you all are really amazing and this is the most adorable craft for a kiddo to give their mom.

I had to give it a shot, since just by staring at the original toutirial by Michelle at I was gushing already at the adorableness overload. She adds a bow on the jars for the perfect cutsie touch!

I hope you too, find it super adorable! Go be crafty and get your kids hands in some paint. Enjoy!

You will need:

  • Printer (if you don’t want to free hand draw the jar)*
  • Blue card stock paper (or printer paper of the thickness isn’t important to you)
  • Yellow washable paint
  • Scissors
  • Black Sharpie
Draw the outline of a mason jar and cut it out.

Use a sharpie to draw on the rim. Next paint a large oval near the bottom of the jar.
This is the fun part! Help your little out finger prints down to represent the lighting bugs glow. How cute his that! Important part is to let it FULLY dry.
Get your sharpie to draw the lighting bugs in each of the finger prints. Now, write whatever fun message in the oval.
