The Art of the Mason Jar...Convenience & Family Fun!

Updated: Jan 9, 2020

New Year, New You? Nope still the same me, but with different intentions. I'm not big on New Year's Resolutions, I like to set passion goals and determinations on what I'll focus on for the new year. One of the big ones is taking the load off my shoulders of trying to do it all.

Convenience plays a large role in my daily routine. I joke sometimes that my purse (who am I kidding, diaper bag) is a suitcase (well, really my kids suitcase), because it is large and in charge! I just like to feel prepared, don't you? Every morning I "get ready for the day." This means regardless of the day, rain or shine, plans or no plans, I always make an effort to get myself together, because it makes me feel good. That is different for everyone. Do something everyday that makes you feel good. Maybe it's an early morning spin class or a meditation yoga class. By starting your day off right, you're setting the tone for your day, and I promise you, it will be a good one if you make it a good day!

Between our busy daily routines and juggling X, Y and Z (probably more like A-Z) throughout the day, being prepared makes all the difference when it comes to healthy food choices and teaching our children what healthy choices look like. Get them involved and interested in this fun mason jar activity!

I've found that using mason jars to prep food ahead and organize for a couple of days makes a really easy "grab and go" in your own home. Not to mention, your kids will have a blast being involved in the process. If you're like us, we're always looking for a new activity and this one is fun and functional!
