Christmas Treat Jar

easy Christmas crafts for kids

Materials used: a jar, snack food, ribbon (optional), glue (optional)

Step 1. Start to fill your jar with your Christmas snacks. We put Banana Chips, Craisins (dried cranberries), unsalted peanuts, cashews, and almonds, Christmas colored M&Ms. Choose any snacks you'd wish, just make sure that everything is unsalted. Otherwise the salt will draw the moisture out of your other treats and ruin the taste.

Step 2. Layer your snacks so that they are at least 1" thick, otherwise your snacks will run into each other and won't look 'layered'. A regular sized canning jar will take about 1 cup of snack for each layer - this is a great opportunity for the kids to practice 'measuring'.

Step 3. To finish off your jar tie a piece of ribbon around the lid. We wrapped and criss-crossed a ribbon around our lid and secured it with a drop of hot glue (or fabric glue).

If you want to add an extra special touch, why not make your gift tag out of a handprint, just a quick way to make your gifts even more personalized!
