Step 1: Paint the Lids
Paint all the lids with silver spray paint.
Step 2: Place Objects and Sand Into the Jars
Place objects into jars and fill half way with sand. Shake.
Step 3: Fill the Jar With More Sand
Fill with sand until it is approximately ¾” from the top---this leaves enough room for sand and objects to move about. When it doubt, test it to make sure you can find all the objects
Step 4: Glue the Lid On
Now, to be safe, it’s a good idea to glue on the lids (or have someone super strong tighten them!)
Step 5: Make a Game to Find the Objects
Make a list of all the tiny objects with check-boxes next to the list or have paper and pencil where party-goers can write down what they find.
