I was inspired when I saw these gratitude and dream jars from Wisteria...complete with little colored papers. I'm far from a DIY gal, but I looked around the house and found, I had what I already needed to create my own.
I picked up the chalkboard labels and chalk at Terrain months ago. This summer, I think. Not knowing how I would use them. I think the jar was intended for my pantry, but never made it there.
These labels would be great for drinking glasses....as they don't come off easily! But, you can wipe off your writing, just like a chalkboard!
I even found these textured papers in my sons' art area. Now, they are cut into little squares, ready for a word or two of gratitude.
My hope is that my boys will join me in writing down something they are grateful for each day and on Thanksgiving, we will pull them out and read them aloud.
After all, life is about appreciating the little things! And that's something I want them to learn early on. What are you grateful for today?
