When I was asked to participate in this campaign re-creating one of Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club featured crafts I immediately was drawn to the Spooky Apothecary Jars and knew just how to turn this rad craft into awesome learning! I use Dollar Tree all the time for craft supplies and even pop in just to brainstorm. Their new Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club is a free resource that updates monthly and is filled with craft ideas, recipes ,and other fun frugal tips.
For the full how to check out Value Seekers Club and scroll down to the Spooky Apothecary Jars . I added in gummy worms, plastic creepy crawlies, and eyeballs. I also included a small chalkboard and chalk for writing down our estimations and results. I omitted the labels because I didn’t want to obstruct the view of the items inside.
After gluing the jars to the candlesticks and letting them dry I filled the jars with gummy worms, plastic eyeballs, and plastic creepy crawlies.
Write down your estimates.
Open up the jars and empty out the contents.
Count and record the result. We were close with the eyeballs and creepy crawlies but way off with the worms.
Math can be fun and including a holiday theme is a great way to bring excitement to basic math.
