Whenever Greg or Casey does something I want to remember, I write it down on a strip of paper and put it in our memory jar. I love it! It’s such a fun and cute way to gather our memories. We plan on reopening the jar on New Year’s Eve 2013 to read all of our great moments of the year. (Then I’ll slap the slips in our scrapbook.)
You can make your own memory jar with a few simple supplies:
- Some type of jar
- Slips of paper
- Pen / Pencil
- *Optional: Stickers, Marker, Glue, Glitter*
Simply write “Memory Jar” or “2013” on the front of your jar (use a marker, stickers, or glue and glitter!)
Tie ribbon to the top of the jar.
Put the slips of paper and pen/pencil by the jar.
Place the jar in an obvious spot and start recording your memories!
