All Saints Guessing Jars {Trader Joe’s Edition}

by | Oct 29, 2017 | All Saints Guessing Jars | 3 comments

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

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
