Summer Vacation Sack
Cast Away Your Worries: Summer is a time to be carefree. More often than not we tend to be bogged down by little things that really don’t matter. This tradition is a great way to learn to let go of what worries us and enjoy the precious time we have together.
On the last day of school, or before you take off for your annual summer vacation, have everyone in your family write down their worries and put them into small bottles to ‘toss’ over their shoulders.
Includes 3 small corked bottles. Each bottle is approximately 2″ tall.

On St. Patrick’s Day, discuss with your children how truly lucky you are to be a family. Ask them why they feel lucky in their lives. Then write their answers down on these “I Feel Lucky When” Cards. These clovers can be displayed during the holiday and then preserved in the St. Patrick’s Day Album.
Sack contains 6 clover-shaped cards.
I Love My Dad Because: Every year, on the eve before Father’s Day, ask your child what he or she loves about their dad. Write their answers on these Father’s Day cards and hide them in places where he can easily find them in the morning. In his favorite coffee mug, shaving kit, or on the door as he leaves to get the newspaper in the morning.
After his day of appreciation, collage the cards in the “Father’s Day” album, along with an annual photo as a lifelong record of how special Dad is.
Sack contains 6 cards. Each card measures 4″ x 3″.
I’m Proud to be an American Because… Each year before you celebrate the 4th of July, sit down with your kids and discuss the importance of our freedom and the truly amazing country we live in.
Once you have finished your discussion, ask your children to fill in these Patriotic Stars. Display the stars for all to see. Use them to decorate your tablecloth for your annual BBQ, attach a toothpick and stick them in the hot dog buns, or just hang them on the refrigerator.
Collect the stars every year and collage them in your “Fourth of July” book along with your annual photo. It is fun to look back over the years and see how not only your children have grown, but to read their stars and see how their thoughts have grown as well.
Sack contains 6 star-shaped cards. Each card measures 4.25″ x 4.25″.
Leaves of Thanks: This wonderful family tradition needs only harvest colored paper leaves that you set out in a basket or bowl on your dinner table. Ask each guest to write down what they are thankful for, and then take turns reading them during dessert. Collage them into a Thanksgiving Album and create a keepsake that can be displayed and enjoyed for many Thanksgivings to come.
Includes 20 harvest-colored paper leaves.
The Light of My Life:
At the beginning of this sacred holiday, have everyone list the people or things they cherish most on the “Light of My Life” cards. It’s a wonderful way for your family to reflect on what is really important to them. Have everyone read them aloud at dinner, or share one “light” of their life a night, for all the eight nights of Hanukkah.
Sack contains 10 “Light of My Life” cards.
Each card measures 4.25″ x 2.75″.
Collage them all, along with family photos, in the matching Hanukkah Album for a lasting memory of this special holiday.
Why I Want to Be: On Halloween, ask your children why they have chosen their particular costume. Their answers will surely reveal some funny insights.

You and your children will love looking back at all the different Halloween costumes they wore when they were younger.
