Year in a Jar By Kid’s Crafts Contributor Stephanie, from the blog A Geek In Glasses via ThinkCrafts.com
Here is a fun and simple way to help someone collect their memories for the coming year. All you need is a jar, a photo and vinyl numbers or another way to add the year to the jar. Then as they year goes by they drop those little things they collect from their days into the jar. At the end of the year it is like a little time-capsule. ThinkCrafts.com has detailed instructions on how to make this jar gift.

If this idea inspires you, let me know. I’d love to share your project here too.
you could even buy the etching gel and etch the numbers onto the glass jar. Most craft stores sell the etching gel.
I like that idea even better than the vinyl numbers! Thanks for the suggestion.
