Are you interested in baby food jar crafts? There are many ideas for recycling those baby food jars. This would have to be my all time favourite use of those baby food jars. I have shared this idea with many of my friends and they have also said it was a complete hit with their baby. It is so simple.
- Simply collect every lid off every jar whether it is a baby food jar or the pasta sauce jar lid.
- Put them into the dishwasher and sterilize them.
- Then fill a big plastic jar with those lids. I buy my rice in a large plastic jar and this is perfect for collecting lids.
When my baby was less than 7 months old he loved to hold the lids and bang them together. He found out that they rolled and then he began to stack them. They were perfect for his wee hand grip.
At around 7 months he began to put them one at a time back into the plastic jar.
At around 11 months he loved to tip the plastic jar over and try and tip all the lids out and then of course put them back in.
When he was about 14 months he started using the lids to cook with.
Now at 21 months he is still playing with baby food jar lids.
We once borrowed a toy from a friend as Jamie loved playing with it so much at her house. When I asked her if there was a toy Jamie had that she wanted to borrow she said ‘Actually could I have some of your baby food jar lids’.
The most fun toys are usually free and in our house all along.
