Kid Thanksgiving Craft: Giving Thanks Jar

How to make Giving Thanks Jar

Here is a super easy craft you can help your kids put together in under 30 minutes. My teen and I did this one. This would make a great gift idea for any of their teachers, family or friends. The kids can make and pass the jar around at Thanksgiving for everyone to write what they are thankful for and add it to the jar. Later the jar can be passed around and the slips of paper read. This jar works great for later, too! When you are having an off day, just pull out a few and get reminded what you are thankful for.

There are so many possibilities! What would you do with this jar?


Materials Needed:

Head on over to our Bowdabra Store to find the above supplies.


1. With the mason lid as a guide, trace a circle and cut it out. Add a dab of hot glue or use the tape runner to add the paper to the inside of the lid rim.
