Hey everybody, this is Gene, and I'm a graphic designer and illustrator. I've been working in the industry for about 15 years and today we're going to take a look at a couple of the things that you can do with mason jars. So go grab some mason jars, grab some papers and pastels, a bunch of coloring stuff, grab the kids and let's go have some fun with a mason jar. So there are a lot of things you can do with a mason jar and there are a bunch of different kinds of mason jars. This for example is a Colin mason jar and one of the quickest and easiest things that you can do with these craft-wise with your kids that will be something fun is take some sort of work of art that they have made and here I just have something that I printed off the internet and started to color a little bit but take some work of art that they have and just unscrew the top of the jar and it's as simple as putting their art inside the jar and what you want to do is make sure it sort of like butts up against the edges. I cut this one a little long but then put the top back on and you can cut a hole in the top and make this a little like a piggy bank for them. They can store change in there and then you know, maybe when you go to Chuckie Cheese they can use it for those arcade games that those kids are playing these days and they'll have a homemade piggy bank that they've made themselves. Alright so there's one of the fun things that you can do with a mason jar aside from pickling lots of vegetables or making your own salsa. So if you have any questions, please let us know and we'll see you next time.
