Craft with babyfood jars

Whenever I look at a baby food jar I think 'I could make something out of that'. I think it's the miniature appeal that makes them cute. Check out this collection of ideas for using baby food jars.

Want to teach kids about being thankful, how about this gratitude turkey from Toddler Approved.

When I saw this post by The Imagination Tree about how to make a glass lantern, I knew instantly that we should use one of many baby food jars in our craft cupboard to make a mini version.

Feeling Christmasy, check out these very friendly snow men from Inspired by Family.

Red Ted Art used baby food jars to make some very easy snow globes.

These lanterns also by Inspired by Family would make a great table centre piece.

Or how about some salt art?

Been visited from outer space - Train up a child used baby food jars to make these glow in the dark aliens.

We also love to use jars for sorting and storing.

Do you upcycle jars? What do you do?
