Gratitude is such an important thing. It might seem cliché, but I have found that gratitude plays a huge role in success and happiness. I love the quote on the front of this journal jar. The quote says “The secret to having it all is knowing you already do”. So true, right?!

The idea behind this jar is that each day you fill out one of the little strips of paper. The strips have a place for the date you are filling it out on and a place to write three things you are grateful for that day. It is also perfect for when you don’t have a good day, you can unroll one of these papers and remember things you are grateful for.

So cute, right? This would be a perfect activity to make with kids to help teach them the importance of gratitude in their lives! This is also a great “unofficial” journal. I am personally not a huge traditional journal writer. I prefer to document my life through pictures and my gratitude journal or jar. It’s so fun to look back and see what you were grateful for on a specific day.

Also, this is so easy to make! All you need is a jar and the files for the Journal Jar. Oh, and some tape too to secure the paper strips.

    Hi Ashley,

    I love your Gratitude jar labels. Do you mind if I use them with the students I teach. At the moment with the Covid-19 virus keeping students at home, we need to help kids to be grateful for what they have.

    Thanks for your great resource!
