St. Nicholas Hot Cocoa

Last night the children and I made our St. Nicholas Hot Cocoa!

We had so much fun!!




After I printed out the tags, I was wishing I would have used an image of St. Nicholas, but I was out of time so I left it as it was... Next time. Oh, and now we know that a single batch of the recipe makes 5 jars of the mix... And it is even yummier than I remembered! :)

UPDATE: I too had a hard time finding more jars and lids locally, but I was able to find them online at Amazon. Here is a link to the lids, and here is the link to some wide mouth jars (mine were a variety of brands -- both Ball and Kerr). I hope that helps!

Happy Feast of St. Nicholas to you all!

  4. I am pretty sure that I bought the jars at Wal Mart, though it has been about 5 years ago. They are just Wide Mouth Mason Jars for canning. And the lids came in a 6 pack (I believe) and were also shelved near the canning supplies. I hope that helps! :)

  5. Jessica, what a wonderful idea for the children to make St. Nicholas Hot Cocoa! I blogged about your suggestion and think it will be a great Montessori practical life idea to try. Thanks for sharing your lovely day!

  9. Hi ladies! I was able to find some of the plastic caps to fit on the wide-mouth mason jars at one of my local Ace Hardware stores for $4.29/pkg. of 8. You might want to call your area hardware stores and ask if they have some available.

  10. We are doing this for Christmas gifts. I found cinnamon candy canes. I can't wait to try it. I found the cutest little Christmas buckets with lids at the Dollar store. I'm off to start right now!
    Thanks for the great idea!
