I was given product to review by Plaid Crafts. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
During the Summer, it can be a bit of a scramble to make sure that the kids are having fun and keeping busy. The last thing I want to hear is “Mom, I’m bored”. Especially because I would LOVE to know what “bored” feels like, if you know what I mean!
Fortunately the Youngest absolutely LOVES crafts so he is pretty easily entertained. We were super excited to be chosen as part of the Plaid Crafts Summer Street Team and to receive a fun box of Plaid Kids Crafts!
The box was packed with fun things like Glitter Mod Podge, stencils, Apple Barrel Paints and some awesome Glo Away gel paint. Anything that glows in the dark is so cool, right?? My son immediately knew what he wanted to make when he saw the Glo Away – “a glittery glowing jar to catch fairies” – which I thought sounded like fun too, so we set out to make it happen!
He started by painting dots and swirls of the Glo Away all over the inside of the jar.
Next, he covered the entire outside of the jar with the Glitter Mod Podge. He said this was extra important to attract fairies day or night. Well, of course it is!
It’s hard to show it in a picture but the glitter Mod Podge is fantastic – it gives an iridescent glittery shimmer and I know I will be using this product over and over again – especially at the holidays!
He even added a couple of glow sticks from the dollar store for extra fairy magnetism.
He is SO happy with his Glittery Fairy Glow Jar! And can you blame him? It’s pretty cool right? It looks extra pretty nestled in the plants in our herb garden but I have a feeling my son will want to keep it in his room pretty soon.
Now let’s just hope the fairies in the garden show up. I think I’ll have to reiterate that fairies are super smart and hard to catch.
The Plaid line of products are non-toxic and safe so they are fantastic for kids crafts. You can find out more about Glo Away, Glitter Mod Podge and more Plaid Kids Crafts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and on the Plaid Crafts Blog.
