When you’re a kid, the stuff you bring to school — from supplies to lunches — is a major determining factor in your coolness level.

At my elementary school, lunchtime gave kids plenty of opportunities to climb the social ladder. Pizza, cupcakes, cookies — these were all prime trading materials, and Lunchables were considered the food of the gods.

Let’s be honest, though. Lunchables are still pretty amazing when you’re an adult. Having all your food perfectly laid out and just waiting for you to dig in is pretty satisfying. Know what’s even better, though? Making your own with a simple Mason jar and impressing the pants off of everyone who sees.

Get ready to be seriously impressed by these creative Mason jar tricks.
