Memory Box for 2012

I recently came across pin on Pinterest about putting memories made throughout the year into a jar and then reading them out on New Years Eve (thanks to Mummyadventure for pinning it on her board) I thought this was a lovely idea and a brilliant way of remembering the wonderful things you have done and places you have been to. How lovely it would be to read through everyones memories for the year on New Years Eve and remembering with laughter and tears.

It’s too late now to do the jar for this year but it is definitely something we will doing throughout the year in 2013!

Instead we have decided to do a memory box, where we will all write down our top 5 memories and place them into the box, them memories will stay there forever. Maybe we can bury it in the garden or keep it pride of place in our livingroom, so we can look back at our amazing year of 2012 during the following year.

We made our box from an empty Ferrero Rocher tub and decorated it with some printed paper and wrote Memories 2012 on the lid.
