painted trinket container

This project is intended for kids ages 6+. It is time to get organized and what a great way to put a child friendly spin to the organization. Paint some plastic jars and fill them with the little trinkets and treasures!
Step 1

Remove the lid of your plastic jar and set aside.
TIP: This is a great project for recycling!

Step 2

Paint the outside of your container and let dry.

Step 3

Now, paint stripes, polka dots or any other patterns you like on the outside of your plastic jar. Let dry.
TIP: Dip the back end of a paintbrush into paint and use to add small polka dots or a round sponge brush to add large polka dots.

Step 4

Paint the lid to match or coordinate with your jar. Let dry.
