Struggling to think of something for World Book Day? Here’s a quick make you can do easily – a dream jar from the BFG! You only need a few simple things to create this make, and either find a waistcoat and trousers to transform into the BFG himself, or fashion a simple dress from a pillowcase to go as Sophie.

You Will Need Craft Essentials
  • Stick or old spoon
  • Water
How to Make

1. Open your mason jar, and fill a third full with water. Add a small amount of one colour of ready mixed paint.

2. Stir until the paint is mixed in fully.

3. Fluff up your cotton wool or toy stuffing a bit, then put it into the jar.

4. Top up with a little more water so you have about two thirds of the jar full.

5. Shake some glitter into your jar – you will need about a teaspoon or so.

6. Top up your jar with another colour of paint – I chose pink.

7. Do not stir – let it swirl around but do not mix the colours.

8. Finally, top up with your third, darkest, colour. Screw the lid on tightly, and you’re ready to go!

For added authenticity, you can write Sophie’s Dreams on a white sticky label and stick to the front of the jar!
