Do your kids get bored in the summertime? Like most kids do, mine get bored too! That is why I came up with the Summer Fun Jar. It’s really simple to make, and your kids can easily help (especially on a rainy day!). This jar’s purpose is to be used on a boring summer day.
My rules are to make sure your kids chores are all done for the day before you let them pick an activity (you can even write chores on the bored sticks if you would like) and of course make sure your kids are being extra good the day you use your bored jar. You can write things down as simple as go for a walk or you could head out for a day at the pool.
What You Will Need:
- Mason Jar
- Popsicle sticks
- Craft supplies of your choice to decorate your jar
You can make your jar however you want, so be creative!
Let your kids help you decorate the top half of each stick then you write the activity on the bottom half. Put the sticks in the jar and pull one out when needed!
Here is a list of some summer activity ideas:
*You can write any activities that you know your kids will have fun with*
I hope this helps you and your kids turn boring summer days into days you won’t forget!
