This is a fast, fun way to tell someone how much you love them.
~Cut a circle out of paper (I used a circle cutter, love that thing!) Glue it to the top of the jar.
~Cut strips of paper, write reasons why you love the one you are giving it to. (could do memories and make it a memory jar, too)
~Put the paper in the jar, screw on the lid and tie it with a ribbon.
~Add an embellishment, if desired.
~Add a tag
This makes a great Mother’s Day Gift, and would also make a great Valentines Gift! My little girl helped me make one for her Grandma for Mother’s Day, then surprised me by making one for me all by herself! Here is what she had to say on her strips of paper..
I love you because:
“You take me on dates”
“You made us art bags”
“You let us have guinea pigs”
“The look on your face at the pool”–huh??:)
“You created charts for us”
“You take us on picnics”
“You started rocks” (our new behavior system)
“You clean the kitchen”
“You got my bed fixed”
“My birthday party”
“You let us eat hot dogs from the grill sometimes”
“You made a garden”
“You let us move to (the city we live in)”
Awww, so sweet! She even put a fuzzy baby chic in my jar that would tweet whenever I shook the jar 🙂
I’ve posted this before, but thought it was fitting for the day. I pray all of you Mothers know how important your role is, and have a very blessed Mother’s Day!
