I love making crafts from baby jars. The unfortunate thing is I dont’ have babies who eat from them so I have to collect them from friends or buy some baby food. My boys don’t mind eating pureed fruit, they actually look forward to it. Well, I must admit I like the baby food fruit jars myself.
Aren’t these Halloween party favors just darling? I must warn you the play dough does smell like Pumpkin pie and you will be tempted to bake something pumpkin after making this!
