Before we jump in to this week’s blog post, here is a final picture of my tissue holder. I think this would be a great craft to do with the kids for Mother’s Day!
Now that I’ve got the Spring Fever, I thought I’d share some Mason Jar picnic ideas. Mason Jars are really great for picnics because of their portability.
Drinks for example – both adult and children’s beverages are so much easier to pack when they’re in a Mason Jar. You can make a fruit infused water for the kids and a yummy sangria for the adults. Use the Mason jar lids to transport them, and once you get to the park or beach, change out the lids to one of our fun lids, pop in a reusable straw, and you’re good to go! Find fun lids here and all of our reusable or paper straws here.
I love the gunnysack.com’s idea of a “Picnic in a Jar”. This would be great for when you take the kids on a day outing and want to decrease waste! Your salad, sandwich, chips and cookies all in one jar. That saves on so much waste, as well as using a reusable glass Mason Jar. Brilliant! Don’t forget to grab one of our snack cups instead of using a plastic one. Our snack cup can be found here.
Hopefully this gave you some good ideas to kick off your Spring and Summer picnics. Using Mason jars is such a fun and easy way to pack a picnic and help minimize waste and increase portability. And, let’s face it, they’re cuter than anything else out there. Mason Jar Lifestyle has some fun accessories that make great picnic items. Don’t forget to stock up for your outdoor adventures!
