Some All Ages Halloween Crafting Fun

Check out these sweet 'jack-o-lantern' mason jar luminaries we made last night:

There's never a shortage of project ideas on the web, but finding one that's: (a) relatively substantial, (b) works for a variety of ages and (c) doesn't require a run to the craft store is harder than it sounds. Even I was surprised to find that I had jars, tissue paper and generic Elmer's glue lying around to power this project.

This project truly is fun for all ages, requiring little attention to detail to get excellent results. Both kids had no problem putting together their own lantern, and even I took a few minutes this morning to make one for myself. The variety of jar sizes and tissue paper colors only helped make the project more interesting.

Perhaps most importantly, I was exposed to the power of watered down Elmer's Glue. Who knew that this stuff was so useful?

If you're looking for a last minute, fun for everyone Halloween project, this is it.

I'll never look at an empty jar of salsa quite the same way again...
