What You’ll Need

Water

Glycerin

Glitter

Mini glow in the dark stars

Water bottle

Measuring cup

Whisk

Liquid watercolors (optional)

What to Do

Begin by emptying your water bottle. You can use just about any water bottle but we prefer using these because they are thick and sturdy and look great! You’ll also want to remove the label from the bottle. How to make a starry night calming sensory jar in just a few minutes!

Sprinkle the glitter into the jar. We used a couple different types of glitter to add some extra interest to the bottle. We opted for this one and this one. Next, add in about a dozen or so stars. how-to-maake-calming-jar-sensory-pinterest-the-art-kit-glitter

Now, mix 1 part glycerin to 3 parts hot water in your measuring cup. You can use more or less glycerin depending on how slowly or quickly you want your stars and glitter to fall. Mix well and pour into jar. You could also add in a few drops of liquid watercolors (blue or purple look especially neat with this starry night theme) if you’d like.how-to-maake-calming-jar-sensory-pinterest-the-art-kit-mixing

Seal your water bottle tightly. You could also glue the lid on if you are worried about it coming off. how-to-maake-calming-jar-sensory-pinterest-the-art-kit-stars
