Looking for Father’s Day Gift Ideas? Give The World’s Greatest Pop gift in a jar to dad this year. It is a large mason jar filled with items that have to do with “pop”.
Mother’s Day is over and now it’s time to start thinking about Father’s Day gift ideas! Since I love gifts in a jar, I wanted to make a fun one for Father’s Day. This gift is more about the play on words and how much fun your kids will have when helping you put it.
This gift is more about the play on words and how much fun your kids will have when helping you put it together than it is about the quality of the gift because it is filled mainly with candy!
How To Make The World’s Greatest Pop Gift In A Jar
I purchased a large glass jar from the craft store since the mason jars I had at home were too small. The one I used is called a “cracker jar” and you can find them at Hobby Lobby and Michael’s.
Going by “The World’s Greatest POP” theme that is on the label, I filled the jar with edible items that have “pop” in the name. I tried to find items that were blue with a little green and yellow thrown in.
Here are all of the “POP” items I found for the jar:
Can of Pop
Jelly Belly Soda Pop Shoppe
Juicy Drop Pop
Pop Secret Pop Corn
The jars could also include a mini box of Kelloggs Pops cereal, Pop Chips, Tootsie Pops, Soda Pop Fizzy Candy, Soda Pop Gummies and so on.
Carefully fit all of the items in the jar, like a puzzle. It takes a little patience and some rearranging.
Here is a look at one of the sides of the jar.
This is the back side of the jar.
And here is the final side of the jar.
Glue twine around the lid, attach some washi tape to the jar and a “The World’s Greatest POP” label (get the free printable label here).
Depending on the dad, some of these items might not be his favorite treat, but I’m sure your kids would be delighted to share! Either way, this Father’s Day gift in a jar is fun and kids will be so excited to give it to their dad.

Do you have any puns for dad?
It is awesome and I am a kid I wish I could eat it
I really like this idea; however, my son calls his grandfather, Pop Pop. Is there anyway to add to the label?
Hi August! You can find the updated label here: https://www.thegunnysack.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/The_Worlds_Greatest_Pop_Pop_The_Gunny_Sack_2014.jpg
Thank you for such a cute idea ! My son calls his grandpa “Papa” so it matched great for his grandpa day “fathers” gift ! Only thing is strange enough I couldn’t find pop rocks but I had a great time making it with my son he enjoyed it to !

I have a 14 nth old and this is will be her gift to her “Pop-Pop’ for Father’s Day….too cute. I couldn’t resist…and it’s super inexpensive. We found all pop items in Dollar Tree and the jar in Target.
Fantastic! I love that she was able to help make the gift!

What size of jar is used?
It measures about 5 1/2″ square at the base x 6 3/4″ tall and holds 2 quarts or 64-ounces. The mouth is a little under 4″ in diameter.
