Basically it's a jar that sits in your home (on a shelf, in the kitchen, pretty much anywhere your little heart desires). When your child says or does something funny, you write it down on a piece of paper, including the date, and place it in the jar. If you ever need a laugh--and we ALL do especially these days-- you pull out a piece of paper to read one of your favorite funny stories. On New Year's Eve, you can go through ALL the stories and have yourself a good ol' laugh session. You can also put them in a book so your children can look at them in years to come.
One good thing about this idea is it "kills lots of birds with one stone." It can be a unique gift for a fellow mom, fun craft on a minimal budget, cute way to spice up your home decor and just all around good, wholesome entertainment.
If you decide to take on this project, we would love to see some of YOUR laugh jars. Email us pictures of them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy Friday!
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. -Job 8:21
