Craft video tutorial: How to make a memory jar
This is a beautiful way to display treasured mementos, and it's also a personal, affordable Christmas present kids can make themselves.
Editor's note: Is it just us, or is Christmas getting more expensive? In a move to drive down costs and focus on the important stuff (family! memories! connections!), we're updating some of our favourite craft ideas. Home-made gifts cost less, but as the years go by, they mean more and more...
By the end of the year, your kids have probably gathered enough holiday souvenirs, favourite leaves, special rocks and digital photos to fill their own wing of a museum. Knowing what to do with these momentos can be tricky, but fear not – you're more than halfway to a memory jar. Just grab a jam jar and get creative to make a simple, fun display that's a perfect gift for grandparents, parents and friends.
