The jars I used are the 16 oz. Ball plastic freezer jars and I added a:
- ping pong ball
- matchbox car
- small bean bag
- pom pom
- wooden peg doll
- plastic frog
- plastic diamond
- "silver" (spray painted rock)
- glass gem
Here's the link to the printable game booklet (8.5 x 11").
After printing, just cut in half lengthwise on a paper trimmer (at 4.25").
And then cut each section into quarters (each section will be 2.75"). Each printout will make 2 booklets. I laminated mine, punched a hole in the top corner, and used some ball chain to loop them together.
Put the booklet in the middle of the jar (if you put it on the side it will bend to the shape of the jar) and then add the objects around it.
I'm planning to put a jar in our trailer this summer to use for quick and easy games or just free play and keep one at home.
If you have ideas for additional things to add to the jar or simple games to play, please share in the comments!
