How to Create a DIY Memory Jar

Here's a great project to do with your kids!

DIY Memory Jar

The first day of school and the first week of school can be super exiting, although it’s been a long time, but listen there are new rules, new classes, and even new friends. And that means you’re going to make new memories. Here is a great way to preserve those good times. So, here’s what you’ll need:

  • A canning jar with its lid
  • colorful paper
  • scissors
  • tape
  • a few items to decorate.

Now, we’ll start by cutting the amount of paper we’ll need. Measure the paper against the jar, and then mark where to cut and now your paper is the perfect size.

Allow your creative juices to flow because you can decorate however you like.

You can even create stickers with paper and tape for the outside of the jar. Place that colorful sheet inside the jar and now it’s ready to be used.

At the end of each school day, write down the positive things that have happened date it and put it in the jar.
