We used one of those thick rubber bands that bind broccoli together to place around the lid of this jar – and any jar that gives us a problem unscrewing. It gives your hands something to help get a good grip and allow you to open it.
What a great idea to send your child to school with, or anywhere actually. You can even have your child help you decorate the wooden clothespins with markers or paint and then add the googly eyes and pipe cleaners. Fill each side with a little something special and clip in the middle. Would make a great surprise when your special someone opens their lunch bag and sees something special their child made for them also. I do recommend that if you are to use a dry on one side and a wet on another, as you see pictured, that you might want to tie it tight with a rubber band to keep the moisture on one side so your dry goodies won’t get damp. Another idea is to use these are party favors.
