We’re all looking for easy, right? With the hustle and bustle of family, work and trying to find time for yourself, we need things easy and affordable when it comes to our kids’ parties. These DIY mason jar cookies in a jar party favors are so simple, and your little ones can assemble them with you.
Mason jar or glass container
Plastic mini animal or item that matches the theme of your party
Cookie recipe ingredients
Krazy glue your animal to the lid of the mason jar. You can purchase colored mason jar lids or simply use the ones they come with. Let stand to dry for about five minutes.
Coat the animal with a thin layer of Mod Podge.
Sprinkle glitter over the glue-covered animal. I used a paper plate to catch the excess glitter to return it to its container when we were done. Really coat this little guy so he is super sparkly! Let it stand for about an hour.
In the meantime, layer the cookie ingredients into your jars. Pack it in tight so it will all fit! We used a recipe for Butterscotch Cookies with the measurements specifically broken down per jar. I created a little sticker for the bottom that had the directions. You can type these up or write them by hand. Punch it out with a circle hole punch, and adhere it to the bottom of your jar. We added a tag and some baker’s twine for a little extra decoration.
Use them as party favors, teacher gifts or quick holiday gifts. It’s such a fun and easy craft for you and the kids that it makes gift giving even more special!
