‘Tis the Season to be Grateful

How to Make a Gratitude Jar

This holiday season, gift yourself a gift that you will forever cherish – a Gratitude Jar. All you need is a jar or box, some decorations, and a pen and paper.


  1. Start by decorating the outside of your jar with anything you want. You can paint it, add stickers, ribbons, glitter, and more.
  2. Next, we need to begin by filling the jar. Grab your pen and a slip of paper and write down all the things that you’re grateful for on each slip. 
  3. Place your jar in an area of your home that you visit often.
  4. Then every day, write 1 thing you’re grateful for and repeat this until your jar is full.
  5. If you’re ever having a bad day, open your jar and start reading the slips of paper.
