Love Potion Jars!

Great Craft for Preschoolers!

By Karen Brody and Scholastic Parent & Child magazine February 10, 2011

Small jars
Red and pink candy
Felt and rickrack
Paper doilies
Tacky glue and glitter glue

Fill a jar with candy.
Cut out a white piece of felt to fit the side of the jar. Then cut a heart out of the red felt. Glue the white piece onto the jar, and then glue the heart on top. Decorate with glitter glue and allow to dry.
Cut a piece of red felt out to fit the jar lid and glue it on. Glue a piece of rickrack around the edge of the jar lid and allow to dry.
Place a doily over the mouth of the jar and screw the lid on top.

TIP: Try filling the jars with colored sand, beads, glitter, or ribbon instead of candy.
