With the time change and it getting dark so early now, it seemed the perfect time to make a lantern to light up those fall evenings!
It was a gorgeous day so I gathered together our supplies and headed outside with Lucy.
- glass jar
- Modge Podge
- watercolor (I used Stockmar watercolor paint )
- brushes & paint tray (leftover babycube holder from my baby food making days)
I put Modge Podge into each compartment of the paint tray, and then added some watercolor to each one. Then Lucy started to paint! She had so much fun and spent a lot of time mixing the colors. “Look, Mom! I’m getting lots of different shades of orange!”
We let it dry while we enjoyed the evening at the beach. When we got home, we put the leftover flicker light from our Halloween jack-o-lantern inside the jar and admired the beauty! Such a fun way to add some warmth to our fall evenings!
