Appreciation Jar Art Project

Create An Appreciation Jar


Materials You Will Need:

  • Mason jar or small box
  • Construction paper or cardstock
  • Stickers, pom poms, buttons, beads, yarn, etc.
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pen or pencil
  • Scissors 



  • Pick a friend or family member you want to show your appreciation for.
  • Cut up small pieces of paper and write down words or phrases to describe what you love and admire about them.
  • Grab your box or jar and begin to decorate it. You can lay down a base with construction paper and then adorn it. You might consider using colors and items that the recipient loves or that remind you of them.
  • Consider what season you are building your house in. Is it present day, or possibly summertime? If you’ve already decorated for the holidays don’t forget to add the lights.
  • Fill the box or jar with your folded notes and gift it to them.


Discussion Questions:

  • How often do you tell your friends and family what you admire or appreciate about them?
  • How often do you compliment others about what’s inside them instead of their physical appearance?
  • How do you feel when someone tells you they appreciate you?
  • What does the word “appreciate” mean to you?
