The holidays are vastly approaching and self-care can take many different forms! This first craft is one of many of our count down to the holidays! This craft will help add a little mindfulness to your day and to remind yourself of how amazing you are! Or it can turn into a cute house decoration! Mindfulness can be practiced just by taking time for yourself and doing this craft :).



What you will need:


option 1: mindfulness jar


-1 Mason Jar


- Scrapes of colorful Paper


- yarn or ribbon



Option 2: house decoration


- mason jar


- Christmas holiday decoration of some sort


- sharpie


- wine bottle lights or jar lights ( Dollar tree has them for a dollar that is battery operated) :)



What Goes in Your Jar: You can put (option1) - Christmas cookie recipes to try


- relaxation moments! In my jar, I put things like putting up holiday decorations


- mindful quotes from your favorite author


- names of songs to listen to that give you a boost of serotonin, from your favorite childhood memory


- encouraging quotes to keep going


- take a break and watch a holiday movie


- a 5-minute meditation break


- writing a letter to a family member you won't be able to spend the holiday with


- take a deep breath and straighten your back note


Option 2:


You can take your jar and write a Christmas quote on the outside, and then add holly or a snowman on the inside with some little fake snow and the jar lights for a cool mason jar "snow globe"!
