Level: Easy

Choose different sweets in various textures or keep the sweets the same and just layer the colours


Materials
  • Glass jar
  • Selection of sweets in different colours (we used marshmallows, jelly babies and chocolate raisins)
  • Ribbon
  • Optional other items to decorate - sticky labels, fabric, stickers

  • Method
  • 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.
