#1 Fun Summer Secret to Stay Hydrated


This my be my shortest post ever!

I found these awesome lids that fit on my mason jars.  I’ve been looking for something like this and toyed around with the idea of making my own but . . . since I have trouble just keeping delicious, healthy food on the table–I opted to just buy lids when I saw them.

If you follow me on Instagram you already know that I found them at Target yesterday!  I was so excited I just had to share my “big find”.  

Why do I love them?

1.)  I love drinking out of glass.  After 10 years of having plastic bowls, plates and cups–I ditched it all to use my “non-kid” dishes.  I was sad to see the Bob the Builder cups go (the Dora plates I gladly put in the Goodwill box!  I was never a Dora fan but the kids loved her.) and the plates that had different sections.  I loved those.  Those plastic plates never seemed to dry in the dishwasher leaving me with a counter cluttered with cartoon characters.  

2.)  When I’m not canning–the jars can be used year around vs. just collecting dust in the basement.

3.)  Mason jars are really durable.  I’ve never had a kid break one.  (watch today will be the day right after I publish this post.)

4.)  They make a table look rustic and homey. masonjar2 

5.)  Hot and cold beverages can be put in them–what I have discovered is that if you can’t hold the jar–then it is too hot to drink.

6.)  Lemon, mint, limes, sprigs of thyme look beautiful in a glass jar.


Could you do me a favor?  If you like what you read on Renee’s Kitchen could you share it with your friends?  My personal goal is offering creative, fun solutions to Moms.  Today’s post is a great example–finding a fun, inexpensive way to stay hydrated this summer.  Will this post change the world?  Probably not.  Will it give you some practical tips?  YES!  My work is done if you say “oh, that’s a cool idea.”  You can share with the buttons on the sidebar to the left!
