This is a tradition that my family has enjoyed for the past 2 years and we are so excited to bust 2014’s open on New Year’s Eve and read all of the great things that happened over the year!


To make your own, just print out the Memory Bank printable and the Memory Tags by clicking the image below. I attached the printable to a round, glass jar. Then, I punched a hole in the tags and ran a piece of twine through them and wrapped it around the top of the jar. When something great happens that our kiddos want to remember, they just rip a tag off of the twine, fill the tag out and drop it in the jar! On New Year’s Eve of 2015, we will open the jar and read all of the wonderful things that happened in 2015 🙂 ***Because these are chalkboard style, a white jelly-roll pin will work best on the tags!*** For best results, print on matte photo paper.

We hope you enjoy your printables! Our kiddos have loved doing this and we can’t wait to start it again next year 🙂

  1. I’ve never done something like this before, but I’d love to try your 2016 printable with my family! Thanks.

  2. At first I thought it was a memory bottle thrown into the sea or buried in the ground, but it turned out to be a planter pot

  3. 2016 will be the third year my family does this, thanks to you! Looking forward to a 2016 (or generic without year) version, if possible!!! 🙂
