As I mentioned in this post, I’ve been in preparation for Littler Pax’s first birthday party. I promise to give more info on that soon, but I wanted to share a party favor with you all first.
It’s nothing revolutionary, but for a simple backyard barbecue (without any special theme), I thought these made a great favor. Here are the supplies you’ll need for the jars:
- mason jars (any size – I chose pints)
- chalkboard contact paper or paint (I used this which I love for labels all over my house)
- chalk marker
- pipe cleaners
Slap that contact paper circle on the lid; tie the pipe cleaners around the top with twine, and write a name with the chalk marker. Simple!
For the bubbles, I used the following recipe. It makes great (tear-free!) bubbles, but be forewarned that they do leave a sticky reside, so best used outside:
- 1/4 c tear free shampoo
- 3/4 c water
- 3 T corn syrup
