How to make galaxy jars

Homemade galaxy jars, kids activities, jar crafts, space crafts for kids

The kids have seen these galaxy jars on loads of different YouTube videos lately and were just desperate to have a go at making their own. So Saturday night seems the perfect night for making a mess with glow in the dark liquid….
What we used:

  • Clean empty jar
  • 4 glow sticks – I used the small bracelet style sticks
  • Straw
  • Around a tsp of glitter
  • Scissors

What we did:

  • First crack the glow sticks to get them glowing.
  • Next snip off both ends of the glow stick – let the ends drop into the jar.
  • Push a straw into the end of the glow stick and blow all the glowing liquid into the jar.
  • Next add the glitter.
  • Seal the jar and shake like crazy to spread the glowing glitter all around the jar.
  • Turn out the lights and glow!

Hints & tips:

  • It’s best to keep a close eye on the kids whilst they’re blowing glowing liquid around… because now when the lights go out my kitchen looks like outer space!
  • Safety tip – make sure you use the straws and the kids don’t end up with with the glow up liquid in their mouths, obviously it’s not edible! 

Have a fab time making your galaxy glow jars!
