My son’s birthday falls on Easter this year and he is so excited about that. To have some extra fun at his birthday party, I thought a fun Easter Candy Jar Craft would be perfect for the kids to do. I was inspired by this pin and it was perfectly timed with the March Pinterest Challenge to give it a try. The purpose of the Pinterest Challenge by My Pinterventures is to motivate all the participants (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month’s challenge is all about Spring projects with a focus on Easter and gardening.


The fun thing about this Easter Candy Craft is that it’s easy, cheap, and super fun! Also easy to do with a few simple steps and the kids can have fun creating their own candy treat in a mason jar. For the mason jars, I used the clear plastic mason jars from Dollar Tree.

Also for candy, I only used the $1 size boxes of candies and it would have made at least 5 candy jars. You only need a little edible Easter grass, so that will make a lot of Easter candy treat jars.

Let’s Create a Simple Easter Candy Jar Craft

Putting Edible Easter Grass into the bottom of the candy jar

Step 1: Add in the Edible Easter Grass

Make a nice nest for the peep bunny to sit in using the edible easter grass.

Step 2: Put the Peep into the Basket of Grass

The peep will fit perfectly inside the edible Easter grass because it makes a nice little nest inside the mason jar. The kids needed a little help getting the Peep to stand up. We used bunny peeps, but chicks would work too. They would be super cute on top of the edible grass.

Step 3: Fill up your Easter Candy Craft with Candy

Choose the type of candy your kids like and let them fill up their mason jar Easter treat. I used $1 size box of Skittles, Jelly Beans, and the Cadbury Chocolate Eggs and there was plenty leftover. This was my trial run to make sure it worked before the birthday party.

Step 4: Put the Lid on your Candy Jar Treat

Put the lid back on the mason jar and you have the cutest candy jar treat.

Now you can add a ribbon, Happy Easter message or stickers on top of the jar. My kids just wanted to leave them plain so I did.

The Easter Candy Craft jar makes a great party favor for an Easter Party or Birthday party. It would look great on an Easter table too or put them in your kids Easter Baskets. The kids loved making it and can’t wait to do it at the birthday party.
