So Glow DIY - Magic Jar Studio - Review
Another Sunday experiment with this So Glow DIY - Magic Jar Studio.
This was relatively easy for the girls to put together as all you had to do was:
1. Mix the glitter, confetti, water and little rubbery animals together in the jar
there were 3 jars in the box, pink, purple and green.
2. Decorate the Jar with the stickers
Here's how my girls did it:
the glitter will float... that's why the toy comes with the kinda extra stirrer, which frankly is not required since you can just shake the jar after pouring everything in.
if you do use the stirrer, you have to wipe it down afterwards as the glitter and confetti get stuck on the contraption.
this is the coloured powder that changes the color of the water in the magic jars.
Here is the finished product:
the real magic and fun begins when the lights go out. There is a small button below the plastic cap that you can press to activate the light.
The lights turn from green to blue to red and rotate colors. If they go off, you can just shake the jar again for them to come on.
Kids started using as a nightlight which was pretty effective.
These cute rubber animals were also very popular with the kids. My eldest could not bear to put the purple narwhal in the jar as it was TOO CUTE!
This toy kept the kids busy for about 30mins making the magic jars. Cleaning up took about 10mins. However playing with these jars and the lights off could go on for hours. Relatively mess free and easy to make. Not sure how long the battery will last for the light but will probably last long enough before the kids get sick of it. Great substitute nightlight as well.
