Glass (read: non-plastic) food and beverage containers for kids are becoming increasingly popular. So lets hack our own version from items that are probably already in your pantry:
- Regular or medium "mouth" mason jar. (I used one 8oz and one 12 oz)
- "Take n Toss" sippy cup heads (the same brand also makes straw heads, which would also work for this project)
- marker/ pen
Step 1: Unscrewing
Step 2: Tracing
Simply hold both the mason jar lid and the sippy cap together and trace the outline of the lid unto the plastic cap. Try to keep as much of the nozzle area as you can.
Step 3: Cutting
Step 4: Taste Testing
Fill with a liquid and flip upside down. No liquid should leak from anyplace besides the actual nozzle. If it does, I'm sorry to say that you cut off too much of the sippy cap, and will need to try again.
That last image shows both the original lid and the sippy cap screwed on. This is GOLDEN if you need to transport a drink without immediate drinking needs. (i.e will not drip)
