Some days crafts are about making something nice. Other days they’re about keeping the kids busy. If you’re looking for a craft for kids that utilizes things you already have on hand, these baby food jar pals will fit the bill. I used stuff we already had, including a few things out of the craft box, and they went together pretty quickly.
What you need to make baby food jar pals:
- Empty baby food jar
- Cotton balls
- Colored pom poms
- Construction paper or pipe cleaners for ears
- Googly eyes
- Hot glue
We also bunched some colored pom poms in to make “spots” on our doggie. Turn the jar upside down so that the lid makes a base with a neck.
I added a collar to the dog by gluing a thin strip of construction paper around the lid of the jar and putting a button on the front.
What I Learned the Hard Way: My kid is really uncomfortable with the idea that the top of the jar could become the bottom, so she left the lid at the top for her bunny.
