Bored Jar

Now that it is summer vacation and already reaching triple digits, everyone and their dogs are heading to the library to escape the heat. And since the Summer Reading Program officially started this past week, in an effort to make our space a little more homey and welcoming I love the idea of having this "Bored Jar"at my desk.  So to fight boredom and invigorate creativity and imagination with our kids, I am having way to much fun filling this jar and giving kids ideas of things to do other than plugging into a screen all summer. If you're interested in making one of these for around the house, think of these activities when planning: outdoor activities-climb a tree, quiet activities-read a book, family activities-game night, things to do-build a boat out of lunchables... Have fun and get creative :)
