Savor the Best Moments of the Year

memory jar

Celebrate the new year by savoring the best moments of last year! Place a large jar on the kitchen counter along with colorful scraps of paper and pens.

During the last week of December, encourage family members to jot down their favorite memories from the past year (like flying kites on that super windy spring day, taking a trip to the beach, or winning the three-legged race at the fall festival), fold them up, and slip them into the jar.

While you watch the ball drop on New Year’s Eve, take turns reading the memories out loud, and get ready for even more fun in the year ahead!
