This might just be the easiest, most meaningful craft you make all holiday season long! Help your family create a tangible way to count their blessings with this sweet craft project. Grab a jar you have sitting around the house, and create this keepsake blessings jar. Keep the jar in a common area, such as the kitchen or living room. Label the jar with our free printable labels.
Cut strips of blank paper that will fit folded up inside the jar. Set them beside the jar and encourage your family to write things down that they are thankful for during the month of November. Then, on Thanksgiving, sit together and take turns reading aloud all of the blessings your family named. Have each person pick random pieces of paper out of the jar so everyone will be surprised.
