Yes, this is not so much a ‘get organized’ post as a ‘have a daily do-able activity for the children’ post.
You will need:-
A jam jar
A tea light
An old wire hanger
Narrow gauge [easy to bend] wire
Beads or chopped up drinking straws as a substitute and even more ‘green’ beads.
Thread the beads onto wire and secure each end so they don’t fall off.
Cut a length of wire long enough to go all the way around the rim of the jar and make a handle.
Thread the beads onto the long wire first and then secure around the rim and fashion a handle.
Pop the tealight inside and voila. Make sure you hang it in a safe place as is does get very hot which is why a longer handle is better. Hang far away from anything flammable.
Children need a lot of help with this one but motivation is pivotal. The motivation here has nothing to do with making a craft or creating something pretty and function. It’s all about the motive, namely, although you may not immediately recognize it, you have just made a ‘moth attractor.’ Now you may experience the true joy of sitting in the garden in the semi darkness with your moth attractor and children and a great many flying insects, some of which might be moths but I’m sure the majority of them are mosquitoes.
