Jars of layered sweets are easy for young children to assemble and are sure to be a hit with anyone who gets these as a present
These sweetie jars are an easy activity that even young children can assemble. Tied up with a colourful ribbon, they make great presents.
: 10 minutes
: Any Age
Choose different sweets in various textures or keep the sweets the same and just layer the colours
Selection of sweets in different colours (we used marshmallows, jelly babies and chocolate raisins)
Optional other items to decorate - sticky labels, fabric, stickers
You can buy attractive glass jars which make a nice present in themselves. An empty jam jar, washed and with the label removed will work just as well.
Put the first layer of sweets in the jar and try to leave as few spaces as possible.
These marshmallows would be fun for toasting
Keeping adding layers until you reach the top.
A delicious topping of chocolate raisins
There are lots of ways you can now decorate the jar. You could simply tie a colourful ribbon around it or use use your imagination to add more detail.
Why not cut a square of scrap fabric and tie over the jar lid. You could even design your own labels or emboss a gift tag.
