Calming Glitter Jar and $50 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway

Calming Glitter Jars and Walmart Giveaway

September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. The Gold Ribbon is for kids.  I am giving away a $50 Walmart Gift Card to one of my readers at the end of September.  The biggest catch is, I want you to learn about pediatric cancer. I am also going to explain how to make this cool glitter jar. I made a gold one in honor of the warriors.

Add as much glitter as you want for extra sparkle.

In the United States, the National Cancer Institute at the National Institute for Health is responsible for funding cancer research.  The NCI only allocates 4% of the entire $5,098,000,000 they received of tax payer money in 2016. Let that sink in 4% of 5 Billion dollars and our kids are dying every day.  

Fill to top with water and stir. If necessary add food coloring one drop at a time until you reach your desired color.

We have to do better!

Cap and shake.

For the glowing jar use clear school glue, glitter, and the contents of 2 light sticks.

Open the glow stick package.

Break the light stick center and shake.

When the stick is glowing, cut the stick open. This was more difficult then expected. We tried using boning shears and couldn’t cut the glow stick open. I remembered the demonstrations with Cutco knives from my step-son, so I gave it a try. Cutco knives will cut open a glow stick.

Pour the contents of the light sticks into the jar.

Cap the jar and shake.
