DIY Thankful Jar

Happy Thanksgiving, my fellow readers!

I think it’s easy for any of us to lose track of the blessings in our own lives when life gets hectic and a little stressful (and who doesn’t especially this time of year?). This is why I think it’s a fun idea to write what we’re thankful for several weeks prior to Thanksgiving and place these little notes in a jar that can then be shared with the rest of the family on Thanksgiving day (which will surely beat having relatives fighting over politics, ugh).

WHAT YOU NEED
A mason jar or any type of glass jar.

Markers/colored pencils

Stickers

Paper

The idea is pretty simple, you just get a glass jar and decorate it in any shape or form you desire (be creative! And kudos if you can personalize it!). Once the jar is decorated, then over the course of several weeks whenever you feel thankful or wish to express gratitude towards something in your life that’s positive, then write it down on a piece of paper and fold it and place it in the jar. To make it even more aesthetically pleasing, use various colored pieces of paper to write on.

What do you think of Thankful Jars? Is it a tradition you would like to incorporate in your household? Let me know!
