What you will need:
- glass container (you choose the size, I used medium salsa jars. That way they aren't to big or to small, but you could use sealer jars, canning jars, baby food jars......)
- oil of any type (I used baby oil, cause I had left overs from one of our Christmas projects, to which I found at the Dollar Store.... I would recommend using olive oil or any expensive oil, not that it would change the out come, its just that you might as well save the money and use something a little cheaper)
- Food coloring
- glitter, sequences, small beads..... (we just used sequences)
- Hot glue gun (or better yet, clear silicon if you have some around home)
- Fill the jar about a third full of your oil
- Sprinkle your glitter (or what ever you want to use that is sparkly and eye catching) on top of the oil
- Add water to nearly the top of the jar (I went about 2/3 of the way up, for this step)
- Add a few drops of food coloring to make your desire color of water
- Finish filling the jar with water, don't go right to the top but pretty close
- Add your hot glue or silicone to the inner lip of the lip and screw on to the jar
- Run another bead of glue around the edge of the lid to make sure it is sealed well (after I did this I wrapped a pipe cleaner around the glue just to kinda hide it
- Flip jar over, back and forth, shake it up!!! Fun some fun watching what happens.
