    1. Hello there! Thanks so much! Your daughter will LOVE this!! We aren’t sure the size of that jar, but the printables in the jar are found in the kit. They are the activity ideas that you cut out! 🙂 You can probably get a good sense of the size of the jar after looking at the printables! 🙂 XOXO
