For the New Year: Make a Memory Jar

Memory jar: because I can't keep a journal and don't want to forget the little things that happen each day to make me smile. Starting today!

A memory Jar.. I am doing this in 2014!!!!! Great idea for the beginning of the new year. Teaches us to focus on what is "going right" in our life.

Cool anniversary idea. You'd need to start at year 1! (picture only)

Definitely want to start this for 2013! Throughout the year, write down memories that make you smile. On New Year's Eve, open and re-read all of the good stuff that made the year wonderful.

Remember to use a toilet paper roll as a filler- makes ornaments go further in filling vases! Good thinking.

Grapes: While toasting to midnight on New Year's is often associated with bottles and flutes of champagne, it is a popular tradition in Spain to ring in the new year with twelve grapes, one for each month of the year. Adopt this tradition with your family for a kid-friendly and sweet New Year's Eve treat!
