    What are the directions to the cake in the jar? It won’t let me go to the website.

    I love using the water bottle for a bubble blower. My daughter is 4 with a gap in her teeth, so the wands are next to impossible for her to use. This is GREAT!

    Thank you for the jellyfish craft idea. I made them at work with the kids. They look great hanging from the ceiling. Thanks
