It’s summer time and the kids are “sooooooo bored!!” LOL! Give them an activity to make that is easy, not too messy and will occupy their time for at least a few minutes. šŸ™‚

I designed this aquarium for Momtastic.com. Check out this link for the complete how-to.

Here is what you need:

  • Mason jars
  • Plastic figurine (I went with mermaids, but you can also use dinosaurs, knights, fish, whatever you have or see in the store)
  • Plastic aquarium plants
  • Glitter
  • Glycerin
  • Blue food coloring
  • Aquarium gravel

Here’s how you do it:

Step 1: Fill the jar with water and food coloring.
