Great Gift for Kids

Da Goddess @ 01:49

You know how you have those days with little kids when they can’t seem to settle down or they’re cranky and need distraction? How about when you need some peace and quiet in the car? I got this: discovery jars (or bottles). I made one for the little boy I took care of. We had these for kids in the hospitals (we’d distract them during IV starts or other procedures). They’re AWESOME and inexpensive.

One of the best jars I found were empty plastic peanut butter jars. They’re not too big, they’re easy to clean, and they have a bright lid, which totally adds to the fun factor. I filled mine with rice and unpopped popcorn kernels.

And, this is very important!! You really do need to glue that lid on, otherwise you can be sure a child (or even a curious adult) will open it. It’s a mess if that happens and with small kids, there’s a choking hazard. GLUE THE LID!

  2. Such simple gifts that can keep little hands and minds occupied for just “long enough”
