Do you ever have times when your kids are bored? Do they keep coming to you saying, “We have nothing to do!?” How would you like to put a end to that? Well we have a way for you to do just that! You can make your own DIY bored jar, can or whatever you have on hand. We used a wide mouth ball mason jar for the one you see in the picture here.
All you do is simply write some ideas down on paper and cut them into strips. Then put them in a jar or can. You can even dress up the outside of the jar or can if you want. Then when they say they are bored, have them close their eyes and simply pull out an idea from the jar! Now they have something to do.
To make things even easier for you, we have made a printable (available as a PDF or JPG). You can print it out and use it with your jar. You will find twelve different ideas on this printable. We did activities that get the kiddos moving or thinking, not just watching movies or playing video games. But you can always come up with a few more ideas of your own that would suit your family to add to it, if you would like.
Let us know how this DIY Bored Jar works for your family!
