Fill it up with water and freeze. Poke the holes in the can with an awl or hammer and different sized nails (don’t forget the bottom too), allow the ice to melt and drain out, then carefully cut the top off and set it over the light. Be careful of the sharp edge.

The problem was getting the holes clean enough for the light to shine through. I had hoped to do this project with a battery operated tealight, but the amber one I had on hand was far too weak to shine through even large holes.

As a retired teacher, I am always looking for fun ways for kids to learn. I do kids night for 3-12 year olds and this is a winner!! I always had the glow in the dark stars on the ceiling in my kids rooms, and they even arranged them into constellations. I can’t wait to play around with this. I have the lights- closet push -on lights from Target, WalMart, etc. Thank you!!!

I think attaching the LED light to the bottom of the jar lid with velcro or 2 sided tape would make the light easier to get to
