Mason Jar Challenge

Mason jars aren't just for canning anymore!  They are truly versatile and the possibilities of their use are endless so why not host a mason jar challenge at your next ladies meeting.  

If you are in the mood for a ladies meeting that is fun and full of laughter and even full of creative inspiration, try this...

Set the date and time for your get together.  

Sometime before the meeting give each lady a mason jar (or you can have them supply their own), you choose, and ask each lady to try and come up with the most unique or creative use for their jar.  Here are just a few ideas I found on Pinterest and other places.

Snow globe in a jar

DIY lantern garland

DIY Terrarium

Table place setting in a jar
a cute and clever idea for picnics and get togethers

Hot cocoa mix in a jar
great gift idea

Salad in a jar
There are a number of foods you can serve in a jar.
It's a great and convenient way to serve foods in individual serving sizes

And who doesn't want desert?  

Bet you didn't know that you could actually bake in these sweet little jars.
Yes, they are oven safe up to 425 degrees.

Could you imagine these warm individually sized cobblers topped with vanilla ice cream?  To die for!

Now you might want to keep all of these ideas as a secret for yourself, but do tell the other ladies to get their creative juices flowing because this is a contest to see who can come up with the most clever use for their jar!  

Set up a judges panel and give prizes to first, second and third place winners.   This is a super fun idea and get ready to have a time of laughter and perhaps even be inspired by some truly clever ideas.

Suggestion:  Do a mason jar gift exchange.  Have the ladies get into a circle holding the jar they brought to the challenge.  Play some music or tell a cute mason jar story while the ladies are passing the jars to the left or right.  When the song or story is done the ladies get to keep the jar they are holding.

Suggestion:  Bring a mason jar dessert or snack for each lady.  You can also serve the drinks in mason jars.  

Suggestion:  Decorate the tables using mason jars as vases or candle holders (or both as mason jars come in a variety of sizes).

This is sure to be a fun time for all.  Enjoy!
