How To Make A Star Darlings Galaxy Jar

Inspired by the new Disney Star Darlings book series, these galaxy jars are so much fun! They are easy enough for the kids to make and they double as a calming jar when the kids get upset. They are pretty fun for adults too, I have to admit!

We decided to make two different Star Darlings galaxy jars. The first jar was made up of pink and purple colors and was inspired by the Star Darlings book “Cassie Comes Through”. Disney Star Darlings books are for ages 9-12. Just like real girls, each Star Darling has her own wish that she pursues with full force and determination—and the help of her friends. These shared journeys and experiences provide exceptionally positive examples to inspire tweens to follow their dreams

We also made a green and orange colored galaxy jar that was inspired by Star Darlings “Astra’s Mixed Up Mission”.

Begin by filling your mason jar 1/3 full of water. Then add one color of paint to the water. Just a squeeze will do.

Use your butter knife to stir the paint and water together.

It should be well mixed now. I used two different colors of glitter in my galaxy jar.

Next pull apart your cotton balls so they are separated and don’t have the ball shape anymore.

Then add cotton balls to the jar and push them down with a butter knife. Add enough cotton balls until they are filling the bottom of the jar, but still covered in the colored water.

Now add more water until jar is 2/3 full.

Then stir gently using your butter knife. Add glitter and stir again, being careful not to stir up the cotton balls at the bottom layer. Then add cotton to this layer until filled, but still covered.
