3. Mix your school glue with a little bit of water. Like I always say, you will want it to have the consistency of soup.

4. With your hands or a small paintbrush, glue the pieces of paper to your baby food jar/lid.

5. Once the jar/lid has dried, hot glue a small stick to the top of the lid. (You might have to cut the stick to the right size.)
