Now I do know that there have been some people posting about not using food in crafts, sensory bins...etc. So if you are a blogger against multi-purposed food then stop reading now.
Yesterday I made a "junk jar"! Some people call them I-Spy jars, but since my motivation for this came from my friend Jackie over at Pocket Full of Posies (who has really great alphabet and sensory bin ideas) I decided to use her name for it.
Clean peanut butter jar (ours is a no nuts substitute due to allergies)
small "junk" collected from around your house
Step 1: Open jar
Step 2: Put junk into jar
Step 3: Cover with rice
Step 4: Replace lid on jar (you can glue it with hot glue if you want to but i kind of want to change my junk every once in a while so I didn't)
Step 5: Shake
Step 6: Spy your junk.
