Teens and tweens gathered at the Canfield library to create glow in the dark jars on June 29.

Amanda Kollar, assistant supervisor, youth librarian, hosted the creative evening for children entering fifth grade and up.

Participants used special glow in the dark paint on the inside of mason jars to create their masterpieces. They could then use jewels to decorate the lid and outside of the jars.

“I thought this would be a fun summer craft to do. It allows everyone to show off their creativity and design their jars however they want. Everyone did a really good job today,” Kollar said.

The library provided all materials for the glow in the dark jars and also provided snacks for participants.
