Gratitude Jar Free Printable Download

Get ready for Thanksgiving with a gratitude jar!

Several years ago I made a Thankful Thanksgiving Jar that really helped my family recognize some of our blessings during the holiday season. Here is a darling variation with free printables you are sure to love from Paper Coterie.

To Create Your Own…

  1. Grab a jar you have laying around your house.
  2. Download the free printables, save it to your computer and then print them out. (Link for the printable is below)
  3. Glue the label to the front of your jar and then fill it full of your family’s responses to a series of fun and unique gratitude prompts.

For a creative and meaningful Thanksgiving activity, read through your family’s responses before or after Thanksgiving dinner.

Take it a step further…

Create a year full of abundance by adding responses to the jar throughout the coming year. Next Thanksgiving, you’ll have a full year of blessings to reflect on and be grateful for!

    We are doing this as a Girl Scout Thanksgiving craft. Thanks for positing it!
    I printed out the Thankful Jar label (love the colors!), and I am just wondering if you have any tips for adhering it to the glass jar. For example, should I use: Elmer’s glue, glue stick, paper cement, etc.

      I would use a piece of clear packing tape right over the top of it- this will “laminate” the label to protect it better and it is safe for the girls to use as opposed to something toxic or dangerous such as hot glue and I don’t know how well the Elmer’s glue would hold it! :)
