Inspirational Jar Craft Kit
Fabulous! Simple to do and
November 9, 2010
I've yet to use these with my Sunday School class. However I thought I could add some useful information for anyone considering a purchase.
The plastic jar holds 1 pint (that's 2 cups). A bit more than I thought so I ended up spending more than I would have liked for filler.
The plastic jar has a strange nub in the center of the bottom which causes all but 1 of my jars to not set flat on any surface. It sort of tips around a bit. It's ok I guess. I've had other SS projects turn out worse.
If I can edit this post, I'll check back when we're done with the project.

Yes, get these, but proceed with caution
Yes, get these great Christmas jars, but proceed with the following cautions: The pieces are self-adheasive like the description says, but pealing the protective paper off the sticky part is difficult. You'll need lots of helpers on hand for this project to get the peeling process started for the kids. If you don't help them, they will peel the sticky part right off when they are trying to only peel the protective paper off. Also, the directions say to stick the bow on the edge of the jar lid. We did this, but we found that the sticky adhesive on the bow wasn't enough. I hot glued each one of the bows on for the kids. I also inspected each one before sending them home and reinforced with hot glue some of the felt pieces that weren't sticking to the jar very well any more. I don't think this is because they weren't sticky enough, I think it is because the kids handled them too much and wore some of the "sticky" off. These jars are adorable. We filled them with candy. The kids will be giving them as Christmas gifts. I would recommend these jars as long as you keep all the above in mind.

Inspirational Jars need better feltd decals or different ones
I ordered the inspirational jar craft kits! For our Family Christmas party! I really like the jars , but I'm having problems with the felt pieces to sticking together, some of the peel off backing is troublesome trying to get it off! And found out there are some missing pieces.. I would like to order the jars again but with different items to cover the outsides of the jars! I order alot of Orienetal Trades items through the year, but more so on Holidays! And I will continue to order more! Thank you for letting me share my opinion! D.P,in Idaho..

These were easy for kids to do and pretty fool proof. We filled them with pretty wrapped chocolates and will be giving them as part of our teacher gifts for Christmas!!!

Great classroom project
We use this activity to reinforce our CCD lesson
The children take it home and put a coin in every
time they do something nice for others.
When advent is over they use the money they saved
for the missions.
