I purchased small glass jars for this craft. I found mine at Jo-Ann's, but I'm sure they are available at lots of other places. Plus, they don't have to look exactly like this. Choose whatever size and shape works for you.
I exchanged the tops for some already decorated for Halloween. On some of them I added felt stickers. I found some pumpkins, bats, and ghosts. Cute, but again, you can decorate this however you want. If this were for a library program, I'd give the kids some markers and see what they came up with.
Then, I found some narrow ribbon. I thought the polka-dots on this ribbon coordinated nicely with the dots on the lids.
Lastly, I picked out some Halloween candy. I knew from the start I was going to use candy corn. It looks like Halloween to me.
This is a great project, not only because it's adorable, but also because you can make one for a friend or twenty for a class. Plus, you can make them ahead of time until you are ready to give them away. I'd like to say that I made one for each one of you, but these cuties went to my Cincinnati critique group. You remember, the ones that read my new non-fiction picture book and gave me all that terrific feedback. They are worth it.
