    My son wants to enter the “jazzy Jar’ catagory in our local fair. You can use a quart size jar and decorate it (past years have been filled w/ various things). He is looking for a new, never done before idea…anyone? Best in show 2 yrs ago was a mason jar with a soup can attached on top and ‘spilling’ alphabet ‘letters’ into it. It was awesome! Any creative idea people out there? He’s 9. I’d sure appreciate the help! Cindi Thank you!
