Mason Jar Aquarium


  • 1 jar per child
  • blue food colouring
  • small toys
  • pebbles
  • glitter


Mini aquariums are fun to build, easy to make and look great on your child's desk or bookshelf. Turn it into an activity for the two of you and build a custom 'undersea' world together. Add your child's favourite small action figures (e.g. Star Wars characters, sunken ships, mermaids) colourful plastic fish, pebbles and foliage. Brighten your underwater world by adding red, green, blue or yellow food colouring to your mason-jar-turned-aquarium.

Activity best paired with the Finding Nemo soundtrack.
