Jars II – toys

Jars are great for storing things in but if you want something more colourful for a child’s room this is a cool idea.

Materials

Old jar with lid – cleaned of all labels and dirt
Old toy (small in size)
Glue
Spray paint

1. Glue the toy to the jar lid. I used superglue to fasten my car to the lid, I left it for a couple of minutes to make sure the car was glued on well. Be careful not to use too much as it will interact chemically with the paint!

2. Following the instructions on your spray paint cover the lid and toy with your colour of choice. This may take more than one coat so make sure you leave it to dry between coats.

3. Fill with interesting things!

4. This could also be done for the kitchen, making it easy to identify the contents of your cupboards.
