It’s week 5 at Camp Warner Bros., and school is looming closer and closer. Summer camp is half over, and in Atlanta, school starts in one month (albeit, digitally). If you want to catch up on the summer fun we’ve had so far, there’s Superhero Training (week 1), Crystal Gem Rock Candy Recipe (week 2), and Gummy Bear Slime (EW! Week 3), and Scooby Doo Puppy Chow (week 4) for you to enjoy. Next up, we’re making a Teen Titans GO Money Jar for banking our earnings and saving up for something we really want.
Teen Titans GO Money Jar
This week, when the forces of evil unite from across time and dimensions, it’ll take the combined efforts of distinctly different, yet similar Super Hero teams to keep the universe secure in the action-packed animated mash-up movie – Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans. Gain control of your own Titans Tower – and give your campers a lesson of earning, motivation, and accountability by offering an allowance for their Chores! Campers can save their money in their very own Character Banks.
While chores can be a bore – you can figure out small incentives to help your campers learn about the value of the dollar, and working hard for something they really want. You can teach budgeting and saving to help set them up for their future. If they feel like being real Super Heroes – they can even do chores for charity – and have them donate to a cause that can save someone else’s Universe!
Step One: Base Coat
Reduce frustration with a base coat of spray paint. I let the kids choose anything I had in the paint cabinet for a basecoat and let it dry for a day. This way, there are no spots left uncovered by tiny tot artists and it’s easier for the paint to stick to a “primer.”
Step Two: PAINT!
We painted our jars using all the acrylic paint I have in the art cabinet. Red and Scarlett chose colors, swapped brushes, and then changed their minds again. There was even paint inside the necks, which may or may not get scratched off, but you can see that the base coat from the spray paint really helped with missing coverage.
Step Three: DRY!
It’s important to let the paint fully dry before you start adding the wet mod podge and paper appliques. It was hard for the kids to be patient, especially with the jars drying on the table, but they managed.
Step Four: Mod Podge!
Next up, add a thin layer of mod podge to the area of the jar you’d like to add the paper pattern. You may want to add a thin layer to the back of the paper, as well. Pat it onto the jar, and coat the top of it with more mod podge. Keep in mind some printer ink will run, so work deliberately and quickly while pasting your Teen Titans Go Money Jar!
Step Five: Enjoy!
After about 3-5 hours your jar will be dry enough to handle and load up with either allowance money, savings, or if you’ve already got a piggy bank, pencils, pens, and scissors for the upcoming school year. If you keep the lid to the jar, you can also collect treasures and outdoor rocks on your nature walk. What you put in your jar is up to you!
Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans the Movie:
In Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans, the comedic modern-day quintet takes on their 2003 counterparts when villains from each of their worlds join forces to pit the two Titan teams against each other. They’ll need to set aside their differences and work together to combat Trigon, Hexagon, Santa Claus (that’s right, Santa!), and time itself in order to save the universe.
Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans is now available to own on Digital, Blu-ray & DVD! Get your copy today and save your way to rewards with our Teen Titans Go Money Jar. #CampWarnerBros
