Method
Fill the jar with water
Add a few drops of blue food colouring to the water with the eye dropper
Place your sea creature in the jar
Top up with more water if needed and then screw the lid onto the jar

Your mini aquarium is now complete! My daughter wanted to make more after we had completed ours so we also tried different sea creatures, adding glitter and different colours of food dye just for fun.
