Let’s Create a DIY Fathers Day Candy Jar Gift
Buy a couple different kinds of candy that your dad likes. You can always do double layers of candy depending on the size of the jar.
I made a candy treat jar for my dad last year and it was from the Dollar Tree. I took all of the candy jar gift pictures, but didn’t take a final picture of last years jar, but it was such a hit that Papa will love getting one this year too.
It only held about 4 small bags of candy that I also bought from the Dollar Tree. Last year I used Twizzlers, peanut M & M’s, Kit Kat, and Milky Way. This $5 gift was a hit last year on Father’s Day, so we are making another one.
The other great thing about this gift is that you can pick up what you need on a grocery run. Honestly, I was shocked by how empty the candy aisle was when I went to the grocery store. People must be stocking up, but I was able to find what I need.
The fun thing about this DIY candy gift, is that there is no wrong way to make it. Let the kids pour in the candy and layer it, until the jar is full. The amount of candy you need will be based on the size of the jar.
The kids had a lot of fun making this treat jar because they know how much Papa loves candy.
Kids taste tested everything and said “it’s good.”
This time, we used Kit Kats to divide the layers of different candy in the treat jar.
You can decorate the jar with vinyl or you can add on a cute tag. The choice is yours to finish your edible gift and make it just right for Father’s Day. Also don’t forget to cover the metal lid with paper too. This red, white and blue paper was perfect for Father’s Day!
Do you know someone who would love a Father’s Day Candy Jar as a gift?
