Make a Mason Jar Aquarium


At a recent playdate activity with my daughter's preschool friends. We decided to make real-looking aquariums by adding plants, rocks, and aquarium figurines to a mason jar of blue water. Everyone enjoyed this super fun and easy craft, and it was great to send kids home from a playdate with a treasure they created themselves.

Materials:
  • Mason jars
  • Blue food coloring
  • Filtered water (tap water tends to give a cloudier look, but is totally fine to use)
  • Aquarium plastic figurines
  • Aquarium rocks and plastic plants (you can buy these at any fish or pet stores)
  • Blue and white glitter (optional)
  • Glycerin (optional - this makes the glitter move more slowly when you shake the jar)
