Snow Day Survival Mason Jar Crafts
"This wintry project would be a fun surprise for a childs teacher, a friend thats a teacher, or for anyone who needs a fun break from the seemingly endless winter weather! Give them the gift of some hot drinks to warm them while they watch a movie and munch on popcorn through a blustery winter day. Substitute your filling as needed to make a surprise for someone of any age. When they are finished with the treats inside, theyve still got a pretty jar to hold other treasures. "
