10 Ways to Reuse a Glass Jar | Natural Family Living Blog

Tiffany from Nature Moms has given us some great ideas on how to reuse glass jars.

1. Beach in a jar – This is a fun project for kids who have visited the beach recently and gathered seashells. Simply put some sand in the bottom of the jar (colored play sand works great for this) and add the seashells. A larger shell can be glued to the lid for a finishing touch. Letting the kids paint the shells first is another fun way to add some color.

2. Lantern or candleholder – This is a good project for a glass jar of any size. The kids can use glass paint to create a stained glass look. Use the candle for dining outdoors in the evening…add a citronella candle and you have a bug deterrent too.

3. Snack jars! She likes to keep nuts, raisins, shredded coconut etc. in glass jars.

4. An I Spy jar – Fill the jar with rice and a few secret objects like a coin, a paperclip, a button, a bead, a small toy, dice, etc and have kids see if they can find all the treasures by rolling the jar around and shaking it up.

5. Planter – Put pebbles in the bottom of a small jar, then fill with potting soil. Plant herb or flower seeds, and put in the windowsill.
