Thankful Jar

This November I decided to remind myself and my family all that we have to be thankful for. Simon, my 5 year old, helped me make a "Thankful Jar" this morning. He painted a regular mason jar from the pantry orange while I used my Cricut and Thanksgiving cartridge to create the leaf.  I also printed out strips of paper that say "I am thankful for ___________________________." So that each night we can all write what we are thankful for. At the end of the month I will scrap some of the more memorable thankful's.

Simon has told me he is ready to begin as tonight he wants to put he is thankful for the time he got to spend with Tori, our cat who passed away 2 years ago.

I am looking forward to this exercise to help remind all 3 of us what we are most thankful for.


  1. This is a beautiful idea. One that could easily become a family tradition from year to year. Thank you for taking the time to share it with us. :-)
