New Year's Memory Jar-even I can do this: throughout the year, write down and date a memory that makes you smile. On New Year's Eve, open and re-read what made the year wonderful! Want to make this an annual family tradition.
Write a letter to your child or grandchild each year and include money for grad gift. I like this idea of writing a letter, and even adding money, but I think it'd be better to go longer than a grad gift. Wedding, first home, first child?
Great idea for traveling or road trips. Get a big map of the US, and take a picture when you visit a new state. Cut the picture out in the shape of the state, and glue to the map! I'm definitely doing this!
Great New Year's idea: Start the year with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. Then, on New Years Eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year. Good way to keep things in perspective.
