Memory Jar

A lot of times when I am cleaning, I find little items that the children like, but don't want to really play with. In that case, I will take whatever jars I have, and fill them up with the little jewels and treasures!

Here are some of our pictures of our most recent treasure memory jars.

I was going to use duct tape on top, but later decided to use a picture my daughter had colored. It looks a little different, and you could decorate the lid with fabric if you had some extra laying around.

These are really fun to make and they get those little trinkets out of the bottoms of toy baskets and into a medium where they can be enjoyed!

Here is is finished. I decided to take the face off the jar and just use the lid.

I am making another one now!

This idea has taken off at my house. I am going to start doing treasure jars, rather than memory jars, with specific themes. I wish I had thought of this when my babie were newborns, I could have saved one of every little bit of their milestones, such as birthday candles, bits of birthday wrapping paper, little decorations, etc. I have really liked this and it has really been fun for me.


I have noticed the kids like to take them and just look at them or pour them out and go through them. It is like a material diary. It has things in it though that I thought the kids would not care about...but now that they are in a place where they are preserved they like them and to take them out and play with them.

How funny.

Blessings, Robyn
