    I saw small mason jars marked down to 60cents. But, I haven't the foggiest idea on what to do with them??!!

    These jars are small size. About salt shaker size.

    Any ideas??

    Will they store anything that your students use a lot? Maybe little manipulatives?

    You could put two or three dice in them and then play a game with order of operations (depending on the age you teach). The students could try to use the two or three numbers to make a certain number.

    Maybe use them for the groups to each store a few pencils or pens in them.

    I would hesitate to bring glass into the classroom.

    I wouldn't use them for anything in the class room that students will regularly use because of the potential of broken glass....you could use them to make gifts for the holidays...

    Make jam or jelly. Keep them at home. Glass and classrooms don't mix.

    I store small things in glass jars at school. I have foam shapes in one jar, little alphabet noodle letters in another. I don't let the kids use them (I get the things out ahead of time) and they are stored in a cabinet. So I don't think there is anything wrong with having glass in a classroom in that instance. Oh, and I have carpet on my floors so I don't have to worry about dropping and breaking.

    Make hand scrub with sugar and dish washing liquid (I've forgotten the brand but it has Olay in it) and use the jars for Mother's Day presents.

    Pretty way to store & display candy treats.
    gifts- layer colored sand, decorate top
    place homemade mints in, decorate top
