I have seen several pictures of Memory Jars on pinterest. What a cute and simple way to keep the memory of a family trip forever. Also it can sit out as a constant reminder of the fun times you had together.
I keep some of my glass jars from the recycling bin we have and use them in crafts. I wash them and use goo gone to get the labels off. This one I painted the lid with liquid chalk paint. I like the liquid better than the spray kind.
What you need:
A jar of your choosing, items from your trip-pictures, shells, wrist bands from museum, parking ticket… You choose again.
What to do:
Add them to the jar the way you want and then display for your enjoyment. I just used tape to get my pictures to stay put in jar. I also found some beach sand in my son’s bucket we brought home and added some of it to the jar.
This memory jar is from a trip to Tybee Island. While there we went to the lighthouse where me and my 3yr son climbed 178 steps to the top!! What a view from the top.
Hope you can make a great memory jar of a fun trip you have taken with your family. These are fun and easy to make with the kids too. They could even make their own to keep in their rooms…
