How To Make It:

1. Remove the lids. Then, place the jars upside down and spray paint 1 light green and the other light blue. Let them dry.

2. To create Mike, paint gray horns onto the top corners of the green jar. Then, paint a big white circle in the center. Let it dry. Next, paint a smaller black circle in the white circle and let this dry. Finally, paint a tiny white circle on the top left corner of the black circle. Let it dry.

3. To make Sulley, paint 2 light purple horns onto the top corners of the blue jar. Paint 2 black circles in the middle of the jar and a dark green triangle under the circles. Paint 2 blue, slanted rectangles above the black circles. Let this dry.

4. Have your kiddo add supplies to the jars, and enjoy!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
