Potion Jars

I have time to squeeze in one more Halloween project post, right?

This one was super easy and fun to make with my daughter. Using whatever glass jars or bottles you have (some of these I bought, some were perrier or pasta sauce bottles), just add some dollar store toys or things you find in your backyard and stick some spooky labels on. You can also add a little pizazz to the tops with some burlap, corks, and twine. Some of the labels were rub on transfers that I bought at Michaels. The other labels came from fabulous designer - Kristine McKay - who shares a pdf of these labels you can download for free! I tweaked a few of mine by changing the labels to reflect what is in the jar, but you can just print them out on sticker paper then cut them out and slap them on! My four year old loved adding the objects and drops of food coloring.  Some of the jars contain those bugs that grow larger in water, so every day we check on how big they're getting. Be creative and have fun!
