Write any boredom busters you want on the blank sheets.
Cut out the boredom busters and jar label.
Tape the jar label to your mason jar using double-sided tape.
Fill jar with boredom busters that you cut out - either folding or just putting into the jar as is.
Next time kids are bored, have them close their eyes and pull one of the boredom busters from the jar to do.
Include not so fun options as well to keep kids from constantly saying I’m bored and just wanting to go through all the options in the jar. This makes it a bit more like playing Press Your Luck – No Whammies!Make a rule that they do whatever it is they pull unless there is a very good reason why they can’t (e.g., it’s pouring rain or snowing and they pull go on a nature walk). Otherwise, you’ll have kids continually wanting to pick something different.Write specific boredom busters rather than generic ones so that kids know exactly what to do. Putting in “write a story about dinosaurs” rather than write a story will give them some direction without forcing them to think of a story topic as well.
