For my girl's April Fool's day lunches I always try to do something funny.  This year april fools was not on a school day, but they got fool lunches anyway.  I sent all their lunch packed away in mayo jars!  Wiish I could see their reactions when they open up lunch and see mayo and a spoon.  At least it's a funny picture in my head.  I've given instructions for you to be able to make your own mayo jar hiding spot.  It could even be a safe!  Put all your money in it and then put it at the back of your pantry.  Or put all your favorite candy inside to hide from your roommates, lol.  Lots of fun ideas.




First start with cleaned and empty mayo jars.  I chose larger sizes.


With masking tape and plastic bags, wrap around outside of jars and place somewhere you can spray paint.  You'll need ivory toned spray paint specifically for plastics.


Paint a few light coats, until it is completely colored.  If you do it too thick at once the paint could run down the sides and leave color gaps.  Then let it dry open for a few good days.  If you are putting food in it, you want the paint smell to be gone.



Next line the inside with fun foam.  Can even be scrap pieces.  I wasn't too careful about sizing, you just want this as a barrier between your items and the paint, because the paint will scratch from the sides and then you ruin your mayo effect.


For my girl's lunches I filled with prepackaged foods, applesauces and granola bars etc.  But again, you fill with whatever you want.  If it's loose like M&M's or something, you might want to fill a plastic baggie just for another layer against the paint.


Put the whole jar in your lunch box. Yum yum!

LOL

Thanks for looking!

This is so great. Our big kid loves mayo, like LOVES it. He will eat a gianormous costco sized jar of it in a month easy. I had to tell him to lay off, it's not meant to be consumed an inch thick on bread. Ugh.
I love playing funny jokes on him and was thinking of buying the really huge, huge tub of the stuff from c-store as an xmas gift but this is so much funnier, ha ha. Bookmarked for later, thanks!

That's a fun prank!  I bet all the other kids were like, "Your mom doesn't feed you anything but mayonnaise?!"

I used to love mayonnaise, especially Miracle Whip, but I don't eat it anymore.  After taking a break from eating it for a year or so (health reasons), I tried it again, and was surprised to find that it just tasted like eggs mixed with vinegar to me--our romance is over.  Sad

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

My family can sniff out wasabi soy almonds no matter where I hide them, so I'm definitely trying this. Maybe I'll get to eat more than a handful. Thanks!

Funny! It reminds me of another mayo-prank: fill the jar with vanilla custard and spoon away! *giggles*
