Great for Trail Mix Make-and-Take
We used these at my son's camping themed party for a make and take trail mix station. We made labels for all the containers and set up a table with lots of different options (peanuts, almonds, granola, chocolate chips, white chocolate, marshmallows, craisins, etc). Then, I made labels to put on the jars for the guests. Everyone got to go assemble their trail mix jar and take home an affordable, delicious and custom treat! :)
(I used the leftovers for a science experiment in my classroom. Each group of students filled one with coke and put a penny in and one with water and put a penny in. We've observed the changes over a week. Lots of fun and utility!)

great product but size was misleading
I really can't complain about the durability of the jars because they are excellent... but they were a little big for the project my class was doing and this was the smallest size available for what I needed... oh well. :)

Disappointed with quality for price
I store a lot of craft items in mason jars for my own use, and wanted a plastic alternative to store some of my children's beads, math manipulatives, etc that is less heavy for them to access. I read the reviews and had pretty low expectations based on the price, but I was still disappointed when I received these. They collapse inward when you hold onto them to put on lid. Putting on the lid takes me several tries as there is quite a bit of plastic flash near the threads that require everything lined up perfectly and a little bit of force. I do appreciate that they are a nice clear plastic, but overall wish I would have gone with the 2 for $1 jars at my local dollar store as they are better quality for less cost.

The Perfect Storage Jars!
I buy a TON of glitter and these jars are PERFECT for storing it! I can easily see what colors I have and the jars are large enough to hold about 1/2 lb of glitter. They also have a nice flat cap which makes it easy to stack them on top of each other to save on space. I'm so glad I bought 2 dozen of these. I know I'll be back for more soon!

Larger than expected
I ordered to use for a bridal shower - some of the jars were damaged and they were much bigger than I thought they would be and that the photo depicted.

Just right for our Sunday School project!
The short jars are just right for our "Give, Save & Spend" project for the kindergarten class at church. Previously, I'd bought the tall jars for the older classes. The only problem...the shipping box was weather damaged. Fortunately, the product is plastic, so the jars were not ruined.

Did the Trick
The plastic jars were actually larger than expected. We filled them with hot chocolate, marshmellows and candy canes for my daughters 1st grade class gifts.

So many uses
We used these jars at my daughter's seventh birthday party for bath salt favors for all the girls. They worked great and were a very good size. I used the remainder with three year olds at a day care to make glow-in-the-dark firefly jars with paint. I will definitely be buying these again!
