All Saints Guessing Jars {Trader Joe's Edition}


The All Saints Guessing Jars are always a hit at our annual All Hallows' Eve Parties.  Each year the kids and I have so much fun looking for ways to connect yummy treats to saints and their symbols. Last year I had just found out that I was expecting our newest little one and I was super sick... I wasn't able to host our annual party, but I still pulled together some games and activities for our family party including everyone's favorite All Saints Guessing Jars using treats from Trader Joe's!


Here's a picture of what we used including: Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies, Fleur de Sel Caramels, Animal Crackers, Chocolatey Cats Cookies, Pinks & Whites Flower Shaped Cookies, Coffee Rio, and Scandinavian Swimmers.

(I was just at Trader Joe's a couple days ago and picked up some of their Petite Pumpkin Spice Cookies for one of this year's jars. I think we'll use them for St. Fiacre, patron of vegetable gardens! I'm also using Sun Drops for an Our Lady of Fatima themed jar!)  


Here are some pictures of last year's jars all filled and ready for the party. Each year I use Wide Mouth Mason Jars with White Storage Lids for each jar.   


St. Joan of Arc, Patron of France ::  Fleur de Sel Caramels

Together with his holy wife, this watchmaker nurtured the sanctity of all their
children, but especially their youngest, a Carmelite Saint known to us as the Little
Flower who wrote "God gave me a father and a mother more worthy of heaven
than o
f earth
.
"
St. Therese of Lisieux, The Little Flower :: Pink & Whites (Flower Cookies)


St. Jerome and the Lion :: Chocolatey Cats Cookies

St. Madeline Sophie Barat, Patron of School Girls :: Schoolbook Cookies


 

St. Drogo, Patron of Coffee Shop Owners :: Coffee Rio Caramels

St. Brendan the Navigator, Patron of Seafarers :: Scandinavian Swimmers
