Firefly Jars

Catching fireflies is my 4 year olds new favorite activity (for those special nights she is able to stay up late enough to see them of course)!  I thought she would love these jars from  They would make a perfect firefly nightlight or, for a more grown up occasion, the jars could even be dressed up for an evening outside wedding :)

  • Mason Jars
  • Glow in the dark paint
  • Small paint brushes
Making these couldn't be easier....simply flick glow in the dark paint inside the mason jar with your brush and allow to dry.  Watch them glow in the night!



  1. Do you have to leave the cover off for it to work?

  2. I've been looking at paint options for this and its very confusing what to use - what did you use here? or can you point us to the original source?
