In my ongoing Roald Dahl obsession of late, I workshopped BFG Dream Jars with the kids in my daughter’s classroom.
I used images of Mason jars that I found online and copied them onto cardstock. Download the Mason Jar Image File
In the classroom, we talked about the BFG and how he collected dreams in jars. I asked the kids to think of the best dream they could imagine waking up to in the morning. They wrote those dreams down on the cutout paper jars and then decorated the paper jars with markers, stars, glitter and hearts. Then for the final step, we put dots of glow in the dark paint, just like the glowing lights in the book/movie.
