For a birthday party have the guests write a memory for the birthday girl. We could just have a secret box in the house or...better, yet, we could email them to a volunteer who will print them and slide them into clear pages in a 3 ring binder or better, a scrapbook from a craft store could be used and glue the printed pages in, in some artsy manner. Maybe like we did for Grandpa.
The family blessing jar tradition is a precious way to instill gratitude in your children with the simple act of recording blessings throughout the year. Children of all ages will enjoy this memory building exercise.

Mason jar centerpiece for graduation! I put 2 pictures in the jar so you could see a pic from either side. I added some decorative paper and star confetti, and topped them of with some tin lids I found at my local craft store. I tied some helium filled balloons in her school colors to the tops of the jars. They were easy and made really cute centerpieces!
