Caring Village Crafts: A Mother’s Day Appreciation Jar

It’s almost Mother’s Day, a time when we celebrate those in our life who have nurtured, loved, and supported us. What better way to give back to these people, than to express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation? A great way to do this is to put together an appreciation jar to give them as a gift.

An appreciation jar is a jar filled with appreciative notes. The jar can be filled with notes on general things, specific memories, or even meaningful stories that will make the recipient aware of how appreciative you are of them. One of the best things about this project, is that it can be as simple or ornate as you want it to be. Assemble an appreciation jar with a recycled mason jar and some post it notes, or make a special trip to a craft store in your area for decorations and supplies. This gift can come from an individual, or an entire family.
