DIY Thankful Jar
Last year we started a few of our own traditions for Thanksgiving. I was pregnant with Baby D and it seemed like a great idea to start thinking about these things. We ran the 5 Mile Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning (we’re already registered for this year). I figure over time we will add more traditions to our holidays. This year I am starting a Thankful Jar. All month we are writing down things we are thankful for and on Thanksgiving day we’ll empty out our Thankful Jar and read all of the notes as a family.
You can make your own Thankful Jar with a few craft supplies you probably already have around the house. I keep on hand a nice stock of mason jars of varying colors and sizes. You just never know when you are going to need one.
I wanted to dress up my jar a little so I used some of the adorable goodies from last months #simplygirlyswap, These paper flowers were perfect! I also had an adorable pad of fall themed scrap booking paper, although any post it notes would work too.
I wanted to keep my jar and papers out on the counter would I would remember to write things everyday so I put pens, papers and the jar all together in a wooden box to set out on the counter where we would see it.
