We have the most darling next door neighbors. Jim & Gail are just the sweetest extra set of grandparents we could ever have had the blessing to live next to. On hot summer days, Gail likes to sneak a couple of popsicles or a even squirt guns filled with ice water over the fence for the boys. She often brings her cat out so that they can love on it, she keeps treats for the dogs in her pocket,  & they always show up to the birthday parties to drop off a little gift & their love.

In the past, I have shared how we like to drop of fun gifts to our neighbors for the holidays & Easter is no exception. When dreaming up this years little gift, I knew I wanted to create something that I could use for several different people: teachers, in-laws, friends, & RAKs (random acts of kindness left in a conspicuous place with a note). I knew I would need to find some candy in bulk & at a decent price for this project. Thankfully, Sam’s Club came to my rescue with their 30 pack of Starbursts & Skittles. Traipsing down that candy aisle takes some serious self control. It got real inside Sam’s Club that afternoon.

In addition to the Starbursts & Skittles, I purchased bulk items from a party store to also place inside the mason jars. This gift is an instant Easter party in a jar & I love it! You can use anything your imagination can dream up. I recommend checking out the party aisles at your local supermarket & dollar stores.
In my jar, I included Easter bunny masks, bunny jumpers, egg & carrot shaped bubbles, & of course those tasty Skittles & Starburst 30 pack from Sam’s Club. Here’s how I loaded the items into my jar: bunny mask, one bag of Skittles (opened), one package of Starburst (opened), egg/carrot bubbles, & then I added in a few plastic jumping bunnies.

Next, I added cut up some floral fabric into squares. This was easy because I didn’t need to measure since I wanted the jars to have a country chic feel. I am all about easy crafts that make me look like a superstar! I had some labels on hand already that I added to the lids, but if I didn’t, I could have easily printed them from my computer or purchased adorable Easter stickers to place on the lid instead.

Now all you need to do is toss in a neighbor, a teacher, a friend, or even classmates (use plastic mason jars for kids) to gift these treats & adorable masks to. It’s gonna be hard to beat this kid, though.
