Start a new Thanksgiving tradition this year! Leading up to the holidays, encourage loved ones to to participate in a thankful thoughts jar, which will not only decorate your home but also act as a visual reminder of all there is to be thankful for. When Thanksgiving Day arrives, pass the jar around, and have everyone read the joyful notes aloud to enhance the gratitude.
- Choose a large glass jar, and, if desired, decorate it for the season using various craft materials like ribbons and stickers.
- Cut small strips of scrapbook paper, and set aside on the counter in a bowl or on a plate along with colored markers. Use multiple colors and patterns to give the craft some additional visual interest.
- Have family members (and friends) make it a point to write down something that they are thankful for. Fold each submission in half, and place into the jar. Make it a personal goal to fill the jar completely with warm thoughts and well-wishes before Thanksgiving.
