Wishing Jar

 
Wishing Jar
 

Every time you wish you could do something, go somewhere, treat yourselves, see someone you love, visit a new place, invite people to visit you, write it down on a piece of paper and put it in a jar.

 

When social distancing measures are relaxed, this will be your wishes list and you’ll be able to work your way through the jar and be more grateful than ever for the little and lovely things in your lives. Until then, you’ll enjoy watching the jar fill up with magical things to look forward to.

 

Some of the notes you could include in your jar could be simple things such ‘go paddling in the sea’, ‘give Grandma a great big hug’ or ‘go to the cinema’.
You could have a family jar or make one for each member of the family. 
 
You do not have to use a jar, an empty plastic bottle or clear container works just as well. 
 
Be creative in how you decorate your jar. If it is a family jar, you could stick on pictures that represent each person.
