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.
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.
