DIY The BFG Dream Jars


My children loved The BFG movie, and the dream jars were their favorite part of the film. The scenes were filled with so much beauty and magic that brought the book to life. Since my kids were so fascinated with the dream jars in the film, I surprised them this morning by making their very own dream jars to place by their beds at night.

Making the dream jars is simple and an excellent way to expand on the magic of the film with your children and create memories with them that will last a lifetime. My children loved every minute of spending time with me doing this fun and interactive craft. After we were done making the craft, they asked if they could go back to see The BFG again.

5. Put on the lid, and place by your child’s bed at night for magical dreams.

A fun alternative way of making dream jars is to add 1 Tablespoon of oil to a jar full of water with two drops of food coloring and your favorite metallic confetti. If you make the dream jars in this way, make sure that the lid is tightened securely so that if it leaks, it won’t make a huge mess.
