FALL MASON JARS CRAFTS

When you can do with a Mason jar?
In our house, it’s a versatile item for crafts and creative snacks.

The store Creative Bag has lots of different varieties of Mason Jars. The price for their jars are very reasonable.
Here are some autumn and spooky themed ideas that you can do with a Mason jar.

•Optional: Hemp String (to tie around the top of the lid)

DIRECTIONS
•Go outside and collect some leaves (if you are using real ones).
•Cut up the white coloured tissue paper in to chunks.
•Paint glue all around the outside of the Mason jar.
•Stick the pieces of tissue paper around the mason jar until you covered the entire outside of it and the top of the lid.
•Gently put glue over the tissue paper and stick the leaves onto the jar.

**HEALTHIER GHOST GRAVEYARD DESSERT**

I made this dessert for my two little monkeys and they loved it! I thought I would share it with all of you.
It is a small dessert so make sure they eat it after dinner.

What makes this recipe more healthy? I used ricotta cheese which is high in protein and coconut sugar which is a natural sugar.

Here is the recipe below…

INGREDIENTS
•4 –4 oz little Mason jars
•1 1/3 cups of Light Ricotta Cheese
•5 tsp of coconut sugar
•1 tsp of vanilla
•1 tsp of cinamon
•2 Chocolate Organic Cookies (Like Sweet Earth)
•2 NON-ripe bananas
•12 dark chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS
•Put the ricotta cheese in a bowl. Use a hand blender or mixer to blend the cheese until smooth (no curds).
•Once the cheese is smooth, add the coconut sugar, vanilla, and cinamon in the bowl and blend it again.
•Spoon in the cottage cheese mix evenly in each of the jars.
•Mash your two cookies into crumbs and put them evenly on top of the cheese mixture to create dirt.
•Cut your bananas into thirds. Take the 4 ends to use as your ghost.
•Turn your chocolate chips upside down and put them into your bananas to create a face.
•Place your bananas on top of “dirt”.
•Serve and enjoy!

Cupcake Party Ideas 

Post sponsored by: Creative Bag.

Are you looking to host a fun kids’ play date or a birthday party for your child?
I invited some kids over and had a cupcake party in my backyard. All of the kids had a great time. I purchased a lot of the items from Creative Bag.
Check out why it was a neighbourhood hit.

*WHAT YOU NEED
*Items From Creative Bag:
Large printed basket box
Cupcake liners
Individual cupcake plastic to go containers
4 oz mason jars with lids (I used 4)
4 Mini plastic scoopers
Different colour tissue paper (I used red, green, and blue)

*Items From The Grocery Store:
• Food colouring (any colour)
• Plastic spoons
• Paper plates
• Box of white cake mix (makes 24 cupcakes)
• Container of white icing
• Cupcake toppings (I used sprinkle tubes, fruit loops, mini m & ms, gummy bears, and crushed my own kit kat bars)

*DIRECTIONS
• Put together your basket box.
• Take out your tissue paper and fluff it up and place them in sections of your box.
• Fill up your mason jars with toppings and seal them shut.
• Arrange all of the toppings, scoopers, and sprinkle tubes nicely in the basket box.
• Bake the cupcakes (as directed on the cake mix box) in the cupcake liners.
• Set the cupcakes on a tray.
• Pour the container of icing in a bowl and mix in some drops of food colouring to create a colour of your choice.
• Take a paper plate and put on a pile of icing with a plastic spoon.
• I let the kids decorate two cupcakes. One on their plate and one in the container to take home.

Our guests had a great time and enjoyed their dessert.

RAINY DAY BOXES

Post sponsored by: Creative Bag.

What is a Rainy Day Box, you ask?
It’s an activity filled box that you keep on hand to entertain your kids at home in the event of a rainy day. Each box contains a surprise such as crafts, books, a movie, or their favourite toy.

It’s easy to create your own Rainy Day Box. I created two different ones with my kids. To do what I did, all you need are the following items:

BOX #1:

White cardboard box
• Markers
• Stickers

BOX #2

Black cardboard box
White chalk marker
• Ribbon

rainyday

It’s easiest to lay the box flat and have your child decorate the box with markers, stickers, ribbon or any other decoration of your choice, and then put the box together.

Once you’ve finished decorating your boxes with your kids, secretly stash the surprise inside for the next time it rains.

 

What I put inside the boxes:
• A craft Activity for each child
• Two books

I can’t wait until the next rainy day when my kids complain that they are bored! At least I’ll be prepared with something fun to do!
