Extend the Fun

Younger kids: Tearing paper into small pieces might be just the right challenge for your little one, so keep the project going. Find large gift boxes and repeat the paper pieces + glue steps. Then you’ll have a personalized gift box that’s perfect for any family member.    

Older kids: Once the jars are done and the candles lit, talk about how the light is getting through the jar and the paper. Where does the light shine brighter? Where is it dimmer? Introduce the words opaque and transparent. Relating vocabulary words to real life—and what’s right in front of them—can help kids learn.
