This activity is good for kids 2.5 years and up. My kids are 4, 4, and 7 year old.

Mess Level

This is a painting activity so it can be messy. Mess level is at the high. Protect your surface with Kraft paper. Also protect your child’s clothing. You will need to use acrylic paint to paint the mason jar (that is not optional) and acrylic paints aren’t usually washable or if they are they don’t completely come out of clothing. Have wipes handy to clean hands after painting.
