During this time of year, my kids and I love working on seasonal crafts together. Today, I’m going to share with you how we made a fun, festive Snowman Mason Jar Luminary. This project is perfect for keeping the kids entertained indoors on a rainy day. After our craft session was over, I used WaterWipes to make clean-up quick & easy. With only two ingredients, these wipes are a safe, effective solution for my family.

Paint the cone with some orange acrylic paint. My daughter had a lot of with this step, but her hands got quite messy.

In fact, her hands were pretty much orange when she was done with painting the snowman’s nose!

That’s why I like to always keep WaterWipes on hand! These baby wipe are free of harsh chemicals and they work so well. In fact, they contain only two ingredients: 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. With WaterWipes available at a great value at our favorite stores, like online at Walmart, I like to regularly stock up on the world’s purest baby wipe!

After just a few quick swipes with WaterWipes, my daughter’s hands are clean and free of harsh chemicals.

To create a snow-covered look on the mason jar, we painted some white glue on the outside of the jar and then sprinkled a combination of salt & white glitter. Let dry fully.

To wipe up the glitter-covered table after this messy craft session, I used some more WaterWipes. I love that these wipes are both effective and durable without any of the potentially dangerous ingredients that may be found in competitor baby wipes.

In fact, I keep one of these WaterWipes packs in my handbag at all times. It’s so convenient to have these on hand when we’re running around town! From wiping baby’s mouth after a messy messy meal to cleaning the kid’s hands after playing in the dirt, WaterWipes proves a safer, more natural option for little ones.

To finish the snowman, we used hot glue to attach a few googly eyes, the cone nose, and red ribbon scarf. I also placed a battery-operated tealight candle inside!
