Does Anyone Need Quantities of Clean, Empty Baby Food Jars?

I have medium (4oz) and large (6oz) baby food jars. I use them for bug collecting jars, finger paints and spice jars but have an over abundance of them. They would be great for kid's crafts, snow globes and probably many other things. I just spray paint the lids and use them in my pantry and studio for small things. Before I take them to the recycling drop off place(since I'm skeptical that they really do recycle the things dropped there!) I would like to offer them up here. I'll ship as many as you need with their lids for just the cost of shipping. Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll get back to you.:o)

I have an overabundance of freshly washed jars myself. I'm glad to see someone else doing their best to reuse. I hope you get a volunteer to take them.

Hmn...very tempting. I'm an elementary art teacher and just got a new job. I'm used to using them for my "paint stations" because they are nice and small, but heavy enough that a brush won't cause them to tip over. The new school doesn't have them...How many do you have up for offer and where would you be shipping them from?

I'm in Cleveland (OH) and I probably have hundreds of each size. I have 4 large boxes just waiting to be used or recycled. I use them to rinse my brushes too. It works very well!

What a great thing to use for beads. But I have a feeling that in the next couple of years I'll have my own abundance. :) lol

They are great for beads and other small doodads! I like to spray paint the lids so they look pretty. I hope your little one doesn't have an adversity to texture or you too will truly be up to your ears in jars. Mine likes crunchy foods and firm creamy(like hard cheese) But he won't try anything else. It's crazy!

Do you still have any of these jars? A teaching colleague of mine is looking for jars for a project. We are in Grandville, MI.

Thanks!

Yes I do have some left, both sizes.
