I saw this on Facebook & think it’s a great idea to do with the kids. Probably all over Pinterest too.
To keep Soren attentive to listening and giving others a turn to talk, we often go around the table and share our happiest moment of today – so this could be a fun adaptation. Perhaps we’ll have four on one day and one on another – but we’ll figure it out as we go, but will put the name of the person’s memory to help.
In addition to keeping them in a jar, I’ll post them here on this blog post to keep the memories longer, as I’m sure we’ll toss out the paper and recycle the jar!
June 26: Hepzaba – Seeing Maebh thoroughly enjoy herself today at Sheringham Park’s Acorns Group. She held an interesting beetle, learned about various moths & played so well with her friend. A million photos will soon be posted – taking a lot longer than I thought.
June 27: Maebh: “Painting my piggies pink like Moms!” [Painted her toes like mine, and she loved it!]
July 2: Maebh: “I love my oranje wheel barrow Mum. We need to get one for Soren.”
July 3: Soren: “The zip line at Bewilderwood…” [Sat up in bed & drew a blueprint of the entire park & 10 minutes later still describing in detail his adventure – very sweet.}
Yeah this is not working so well! Clearly the jar is a better idea! I think I’ll get the jar out asap and at dinner, we’ll write the memory. I’ll be sure to put the dates on the back – then perhaps I will come back and type out them to keep the memories forever.
