Since being introduced to Aladdin plastic mason jars earlier this year, I have found so many uses for them, but these pumpkin snack jars might be my family’s new favorite! When Aladdin contacted me about doing a sponsored Halloween post, this idea instantly popped in my head. It is easy to execute and your kids will love it.
I made them as a special surprise for the kids for when we went to the pumpkin patch, and we have used them every day since.
Adeline calls the jars her pumpkin snacks and every day after school she loves having a snack in the car out of her pumpkin jar. (Yesterday I forgot her pumpkin snack jar and it was an epic meltdown for the first half of the ride home!)
To make them, simply spray paint your Aladdin mason jars and caps orange. I used these plastic 12 ounce jars and orange Krylon Fusion for Plastic spray paint. Once they dry, use black craft paint to add a jack-o-lantern face.
Once the pumpkin snack jars are dry, fill them with some Halloween trail mix. I mixed chocolate chex, teddy grahams, raisins and candy corn for the perfect Halloween treat.
