Make your own firefly jar

When the girls are outside in the evenings catching fireflies, we never seem to have the right containers to put them in. We use babyfood jars, plastic cups and other random containers that we grab at the last minute.

I've actually been thinking about making cute firefly containers for R&R and all of their cousins, and I just came across this cute little DIY jar and tag at Southern Living. It looks like all you need is a mason jar with a lid, some breathable fabric, some ribbon, and the tag (free PDF download).

I'm not sure how well the fabric will stay on when kids are opening and closing the lid, so I might try poking small holes in the lid. So cute!
