Memory Sand Jars are a fun craft for kids while on family vacation! Make a beach in a jar with sand and shells from your vacation to remember the trip. Such a fun vacation keepsake.
Make Memory Sand Jars you your next beach vacation!
Vacation is a time to relax, so I love doing crafts with my kids and making memories! Memory Sand Jars are a wonderful craft and beach vacation keepsake for kids to make. We just returned home from our wonderful beach vacation to Bluefields Bay Villas in Jamaica. Not only did I take a ton of photos, but we enjoyed crafting while away. I can’t tell you in words just how wonderful this family vacation was!
As I get back into the grove of my normal schedule, I will write a bit more about our trip and show you some fun ways to preserve memories of your family travels through easy crafts. I get a lot of comments on my photos, so I wrote some tips for taking memorable vacation photos that you will want to frame. One way for our kids to remember our recent trip was to bring a little bit of the beach home with us with memory sand jars!
How to make Memory Sand Jars or a “Beach in a Jar”.
I planned ahead for this memory sand jars craft and packed small jars, small tubes of e-6000 glue and tags to let my kids collect items from Jamaica and make tiny beaches in a jar. You could do this kids craft to preserve any type of trip, not just a beach. I found my mini jars at Ikea, but search around Amazon and I bet you can find similar versions. Click here for some cute ones!
Below our villa was a beautiful beach with gorgeous rocks and sea shells. So there was plenty of exploring to collect beach memories. Our resort nanny, Sasha, also took the kids around to where there were more shells.
My kids loved doing this so much that I will make it a tradition from now on when we travel. I think their beach in jar collection will look so pretty in our living room! Each time we look at their crafts, we will remember the beautiful blue waters…
our delicious dinners overlooking the sea….
kayaking in the ocean…
and the gorgeous sunsets from our patio.
Thanks for following my trip through Instagram. If you missed any of my Jamaica travel photos, you can look for them with the hashtag #LivingLocurtoJA.
We want to give a BIG thanks to Bluefields Bay Villas for such a wonderful time!
