Watch a lighting storm come to life with this storm in a cup luminary craft.
I love the rain. When I was a little girl, I would get excited when it would thunder and lightning. My daughter is a lot like me in this aspect. A while back we made it rain in a jar. Yesterday, we made it storm in a cup.

What you will need:
Clear plastic cups
Use a black Sharpie to draw lightning bolts on the outside of a clear plastic cup.
My daughter drew her lightning bolts and then drew Supergirl flying through the lighting.
Squeeze some school glue into the cup and use a paint brush to spread it around.
Tear up pieces of tissue paper in yellow and shades of blue. Press the yellow tissue paper inside of the cup behind the lightning bolts. Cover the rest of the inside of the cup with the blue pieces.
My daughter also added a little bit of red for Supergirl’s cape.
If the tissue paper bunches up inside, you can add dip your brush in a little water or more glue and paint over the tissue to flatten it down.
Turn your cup upside down and add some more glue to the top of the cup. Loosen up a cotton ball or two and press onto the glue to form a cloud.
Place a flameless tea light under your cup and watch your lighting storm dance in the light.
