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 🙂

where did you get the ja yeah
I’ve never done something like this before, but I’d love to try your 2016 printable with my family! Thanks.
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
Love this! Will there be a 2016 version? Pretty please?
When are you going to post the 2016 version? I would love to use this for my memory jar! Thanks! 🙂
I haven’t done this before, but would love your printable for 2016 to try with my family! Thanks.
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!!! 🙂
Will you please post a 2016 version? love this idea!!
Any chance you’re going to do this again for 2016? It’s such a lovely idea!
Do you have a template without the year on it so we can use it year after year?
I cannot wait to do this with my family this year. Thanks so much!
awesome! where did you get the jar?
Yay! 😀 Thank you for your awesome site.
Thanks 2015, will be a memorable year. Thanks for all the projects that you’d shared in 2014. I love this site.
