When I was a kid I could watch things that might bore others for ages. Fish tanks have been a constant source of entertainment for me and when, as an adult, I was told I needed to get rid of mine due to new flooring that was being installed I was really upset. Watching those fish was an amazing source of calmness to help me combat my anxiety without medication. It was rough for a time after those fishies were gone.
I also enjoyed lava lamps when I was younger but one day I felt that I had outgrown mine and it was tossed aside. These days I find myself staring at screen savers and ants milling around on the ground. So when I was tasked with making a lava lamp I knew I couldn’t do the old style light up justice. Instead I went with making a lava lamp sensory jar that is very similar but no way trying to be as awesome as the fantastically 70s style lighting.
