Disclosure: I was sent a free copy of the book in order to participate in the party in a jar book tour, but all my opinions are my own.

I love this book so much that we had a hard time just choosing one to make – we’ve practically flagged the entire book of jar ideas!  Since little T is practically OBSESSED with dinosaurs, our first pic from the book were the Dino Terrarium Jars.  V&T helped with the super easy process of creating these – and they also helped with the super easy process of eating them too!!  Just grab a copy of the book to see the step-by-step tutorial on how to create this yummy treat, along with several others, with your little ones!
