Layer pine cones and small decorations in the mason jar. Tie a ribbon around the top of the jar.

That's it! That's all there is to it.

Kids can fill the jar, and empty it, and fill it again until it looks 'just right'.

There is no right or wrong way to make a mason jar decoration.

This activity promotes sensory play and learning opportunities as kids choose materials, sort and count, and fill the jar. Then maybe - just maybe - they will ask for help tying a bow.
