What do you do with your baby food jars? We are boring at our house. We only do one of two things with ours. Mostly, we recycle. Or the baby food we do make goes into these jars for storage. I was on a baby forum the other day where this question came up. It made me think and I began compiling lots of neat ideas and I want to share with them you!
Cheerios for the diaper bag
Salad Dressing to take to work
Spices or Herbs
Beads, Screws, Hair Clips
Small toys - My Little Pony brushes, Barbie shoes, GI Joe guns
Fun Easy Projects for Kids
Make Butter - add a couple of Tablespoons of heavy whipping cream, shake up good, spread on some yummy cinnamon bread.
Add water with a bit of food coloring and confetti - shake
Firefly or Bug jar - poke holes in lid and catch your bugs!
Gifts (decorate lids with fabric and ribbons)
Hot Chocolate in a jar
Pour your own candles
Paperweights - colored marbles or artificial flowers are a couple of examples to put inside.
Tea light candle holders - decorate jar with tissue, paint the jar, or use craft glue the jar to add sparkles, rhinestones or any other decoration.
Crafty Ideas (use your imagination for TONS of ideas!) a couple of my favorites with links on how to accomplish them.
Gel Air Fresheners
Snow Globes - easier one here or a bit more work here
Reindeer Food or Winter Rabbit Food if you don't celebrate Christmas
Christmas Tree - look at this!
My Beach Favorites
Colored sand art
Fill with small shells or pebbles
Ocean scene - water with blue/green food coloring, a little glitter added, a small rubber fish attached to the jar lid with fishing string.
Or sell them on Ebay and make a little cash! :)
