Sometimes in the middle of the day, you need a little pick-me-up. Making a jar filled with candy is a great way to get a quick satifisying treat.
For the past couple of months, I’ve been in school, finishing up the last bit of my classes and soon, by the end of the year, I will have my degree (YAY!). I’ve been busy with getting back into vlogging, blogging and volunteering at my church. I’m busy! All things I LOVE and have a passion for. Recently, I just back from summer break and started taking summer classes, as I stated above. It takes a lot for me to get focus, to study, write papers and read. I needed a little pick-me-up to get me started and back to my routine. It is setting right on my desk, where I can work and enjoy some chocolate!
I came across this idea, at the dollar store, looking for little projects to keep the kids off-screen time. I thought I can create a jar filled with candy… for me! I showed a video of the kids and I shopping at the Dollar store, check that out. All the items I got to make the candy-filled jar was less $5 and the kids thought it was a fun idea.
- A small glass jar
- Marker* (If you don’t have one at home, you can easily get one from the dollar store)
- 3 packs of candy or chocolate to fill the Jar
That’s it! I picked 3 different kinds of candies that… #1- I loved. #2- that looked the same. I wanted to get a surprise everytime, I went in the jar. I picked: Plain chocolate M&Ms, Reese Pieces and Skittles. You might be wondering why skittles… Well… I wanted a surprise in the jar and skittles is a nice twist to the chocolate theme. I choose the different combinations of candy, but when you’re making the candy Jar, you can choose any kind of combination of candy that you enjoy or you can choose one and go nuts! 😀 (See what I did there?!).
I hope you guys enjoy!
