    WiGal's Note:

    From Everyone needs to be told how well they're doing or how wonderful they are. Moms are no different. Sometimes mom might need a compliment when she's feeling blue or just has too much work to get done. Here's a gift that will keep on giving all year long. You can help perk mom up by making this compliment jar. Fill it with 20 compliments that she can have whenever she needs one. Because RZ would not recognize QUART JAR WITH LID or SCISSORS or 1 PHOTO OF YOURSELF, I am putting it here. ASK PERMISSION BEFORE CUTTING UP THE PHOTO. This basic idea could be varied easily-why not for older people in the nursing home with knock knock jokes or something? But use an unbreakable container instead of glass. Or maybe tasks that you are reasonably able to do? The spatulatta site also had some excellent lessons for teachers, e.g. an insect body lesson.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 sheets paper, 3 different colors of construction paper
    • glue
    • 18 inches ribbon (optional)
    • 1 pencil
    • 1 pen


    1. 1
      Start by thinking of at least 20 nice things about your mom. Compliments are things you might say like, "You're so pretty," "You're so smart - especially at homework time" or "You're always there when I need you." "Your cookies are the best on earth" "I love it when you sing with me".
    2. 2
      Cut strips of construction paper about 1 inch wide and 6 inches long.
    3. 3
      Write a compliment on each strip in pen.
    4. 4
      Take the strip and wrap it tightly around the pencil.
    5. 5
      When you slide the paper off the pencil it should stay in a curl.
    6. 6
      Put the curls into the jar.
    7. 7
      Mix up the colors so they look festive.
    8. 8
      If you have a photo of yourself, you can paste it on top of the jar lid. If not, draw a picture of mom with a big smile.
    9. 9
      Screw on the lid and tie a ribbon around the neck of the jar.

      Great great idea! I grew up in a family where compliments are rare. And I need them but when I tell my mom to praise my food , for ex, she says :"You know it's good so why do I need to tell you". With her it's kind of hard for me to compliment on some things, so this is the best idea. I'm going to use it for my dad too as he needs to work on some issues and I'll turn them into compliments somehow, like"I know you have the power to do that".And I'll have DD say some nice things too. And I'm making one for myself.
