We like to use glass mason jars for our beverages. One, because I don’t use plastic, and two, we have a lot of them, and three, if the kids accidentally broke one of them, it wouldn’t be as “tragic” as they are easily replaceable.
The biggest issue left was the fact that they were a bit hard for the kids to drink out of. So, we set about making a spill-proof lid mason jar lid!
We started by visiting Menards and going into the electrical section for the grommets. They were $.99 for the bag.
Then, hubby got out his 1/2″ drill bit, and made a nice hole in the top of a mason jar lid for me:
… and filed down the area a bit:
He inserted the rubber grommet into the hole. And, it was a tight squeeze and kind of frustrating at first, so I am glad it was him, not me:
We washed it out, then placed on a clean jar. Inserted a straw, and viola! A spill proof mason jar lid is born!
