5: Mason Jar Easter Scenes

 Remember back in the Valentine’s Day crafts post when I said you could reuse the mason jars from the tea light holder project for other crafts throughout the year? Well, here’s an example of that.  

Mason Jar Easter Scenes allow kids to create miniature dioramas that celebrate the Easter season. This craft encourages storytelling and creativity as children design their own Easter-themed scenes.  Since kids can make their scenes as simple or complex as they want, this one is perfect for older kids and teens, too.
