An Irish Mason Jar Monday March 2, 2009

My husband is of Irish/Welsh/possibly Scottish decent, our last name thought to be very Irish but now I am finding out it may be more Scottish.  Anyhow, in the spirit of all things Irish, here is a St. Patrick’s Day Craft for your mason jars.  If you happen to have green mason jars or mason jar lids like this:


all the better.

Leprechaun Chowder found here.

Put one package of Pistachio Pudding Mix in a mason jar with a label like this only change 1/4 cup of milk to 2 cups of milk since we are using the whole pudding mix package:


Another fun thing to do around St. Patrick’s Day is to put white carnation flower into a mason jar with water tinted green from green food coloring.  The flower will soak up the green water turning its petals a beautiful shade of green.  Again if you have a green mason jar like this one:


all the better.  You can use this opportunity to talk about botany and study how and why the petals turn colors with your children for a great impromptu science lesson!

Happy Early St. Patrick’s Day!

    This is great Jen!!! We did the flower thing last year and Lily thought it was a lot of fun. We’ll definitely have to try it again this year. 🙂

    Try daisies too, being my favorite, as they take the color in great, too.
