Family Vacation Fund
Glass Jar, Paint, Chalkboard Paint & Paint (optional)
Paint your jar to match your home decor, then paint “family vacation fund” or similar phrase on the outside. (optional) Use chalkboard paint to make a space below to write which vacation you are saving for. Work together with your family to save for your vacation by putting extra change in the jar. You could also keep track of your progress by using our free printable savings goal sheet.
Family Inside Joke Wall
Sticky Notes, Pen, (optional) frame
Find a space in your home (or hang your frame in a prominent place) that you can fill with sticky notes. Keep track of inside jokes, uplifting quotes and funny moments by writing them on a sticky note and adding them to your wall, door, window or frame.
Letters To Your Children
Get a journal for each member of your family. Every once in a while, write in the journal as if you are writing them a letter. Share your thoughts on their life and your family. This is a great way to leave a legacy of your child’s first years for them to read when they are old enough. Tape photos and other memories inside for a scrapbook type feel too.
Family Gratitude Journal
Get a notebook, decorate the cover as desired, then place it on the family coffee table or other prominent location. Sit down together each night and write at least one thing you were grateful for that day.
