Memory Jar

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…
