  • A fun and cheap craft we love to do that is all ages is paint glass jars that we then gift. Basically I save all the glass jelly jars, salsa jars, pickle jars etc. And then I get acrylic paint and brushes. Lay down news paper put the baby in a diaper and let them go at it. The point is they can paint it anyway they want and depending on the colors etc you can make it more for a holiday like just have red,green,blue for xmas, or orange and black for hallloween. Then the jars can become gifts. We use them to hold candy, flower vases, pencil holders. Usually I spray and gloss on them after they are finished painting them as well. And I have done this several times with my now 2 year old and my 4 1/2 year old
