I know it’s not even St. Patrick’s Day yet, but I know many of you are already looking for Easter ideas. I know I am at least. 😉
Today’s idea is a super cute and simple gift idea perfect for teachers, neighbors, friends and family for Easter. I figured since I’ve shared Cookie Jar Gifts for almost every holiday so far, I should also do one for Easter. That’s right – I’m always looking for easy gift ideas to give to neighbors and the sisters I visit teach at church, and this gift is perfect. From start to finish it took only about 10 minutes total of time (spaced out of course because of spray painting the lid), but it was so easy and turned out so cute.
If you’d like to make this Easter Cookie Jar gift for your loved ones and friends, then this is what you’ll need:
– Quart Jar
– Cookie Ingredients (found below)
– Printable (found below)
– Scrapbook Paper
1. Clean your jars and let dry completely.
**If you want to paint your lid, spray paint it and let dry. I also added a think layer of Spray Polyurethane as well. Let dry completely.
2. Fill your jars. Start with 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/s tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt.
Then add 1/2 cup brown sugar followed by 1/2 cup sugar.
Then add 2/3 cup milk chocolate chips.
Top off with 2/3 cup Easter M&Ms.
3. From there you will need to download the Cookie Jar label by clicking HERE.
I suggest printing onto cardstock so the recipe can be more durable for later use.
4. Cut out and tape onto your jar (or use Glue Dots) and then tie some twine or ribbon around the top.
Simple and cute!! I know you can find gifts like these already made, but they are usually more expensive and not as cute. 😉
I think we’ll be making these for the kiddos’ teachers too. 🙂
