All Saints Guessing Jars {8 More Saints!}

Our annual All Saints Guessing Jars are filled and ready for the party tomorrow night! This year I decide to re-use some of our past ideas/labels (there are now so many to choose from!) adding in some new ones to the mix. You can click the link to download the free printable for this year's new labels at the bottom of this post! 

Trader Joe's was my first stop for supplies. I love that they don't use artificial dyes and have such fun snacks! I picked up Petite Pumpkin Spice Cookies, Pinks & Whites, Fleur de Sea Caramels, Chocolatey Cats Cookies, Scandinavian Swimmers, Organic Animal Crackers, and Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies. 

I also got some carving pumpkins for Saint-O-Lanterns!

Instead of reusing the Cat Cookies for St. Jerome, I made up a new label for St. Gertrude of Nivelles, Patron of Cats.  Instead of using the animal crackers for St. Francis of Assisi again, they are now "wild beasts" for Its. Perpetual and Felicity. 

I always enjoy browsing candy isles at the grocery store to see what else I can come up with for new ways to connect candy to the saints. 

Now that Christmas stuff is available so early, I had even more options! As soon as I saw the Kissmas Tree Hershey Kisses I thought they would be perfect for St. Boniface, recalling the picture book Kristoph and the First Christmas Tree (included in our 2015 New Christmas Books for the Feast of St. Nicholas). 


I also had someone email me asking if I had any ideas for St. Sebastian (along with a couple other saints), and I had been planning to include him this year with Super Sports Chocolate Candy, since he is the Patron of Athletes!

I love how these three jars turned out. So fun!

I never did pick up Dove chocolates for St. Teresa of Avila, but a label is included in the new printable for this year. 

I also included labels for St. Teresa of Calcutta (any white and blue striped candy would work like these, these or these) and St. Maria Faustina (I think these could work for "Rays of Mercy"). 


  1. Thank you! These jars are a favorite part of our all saints day party!

  2. Thank you for sharing! I have used these for my children’s confirmation parties. Child number 3 is currently preparing for her confirmation. Lots of great saint ideas!

  3. Such creativity Jessica! I love the ideas of candies and cookies to go with the Saints. Researching the Saints must have been so enjoyable to do with your children along with a fun shopping trip to find all of the treats.

  4. What would you recommend to fill a jar for St. Vincent de Paul? He is known for saint of charity. I'm stumped.

    1. What about chocolate coins representing charitable donations?
