Stars (silver stars to be exact) play a significant part in our family as our daughters are both Silver Star babies. Due to both my pregnancies being high risk due to Diabetes this is the ward that they were born into and I am so thankful to the staff that helped me bring my girls safely into the world.
Of course I also love being creative and when I saw that Christmas Little Makes theme this week was stars I thought it would be great to do an activity featuring them. ChalkOla had recently sent out a couple of sets of chalk markers for me to play with and so I thought it would be fun to use these to create stars and swirls on an old jar we had in the food cupboard. The markers are great for any kind of Non Porous Surface (like chalkboard,windows, labels, jars, paper etc). The pens are non toxic, water based - wet wipe and can be erased easily using a wet cloth.
My eldest helped pick out the colours and I simply shook the pens for 30 seconds before rolling the nib back and forth on the glass. This led to the liquid being brought up to the surface and soon turned the jar from bland and boring to an explosion of psychedelic colour. If you make a mistake than it is easy to wash off and start again before it completely dries.
With Christmas just a few weeks away you could always draw holly and berries on the jar instead or how about love hearts for Valentine’s Day? You could also write something on the jar or the lid and of course put different things inside the jar.
