How To Make A Holiday Boredom Jar
30 Activities for the School Holidays & the Boredom Jar
At the start of the school holidays we decided to create a boredom Jar. The whole idea of the jar was to write down ideas of activities my daughter could do in the home (or outside in the garden) during the holidays if and when she began to feel bored.
So we gathered together, a jar, some coloured paper, felt tips and scissors. Then we got to work writing the ideas onto paper.
Sylvia wanted to make a little “HOW TO” movie, which we did on my Iphone and then uploaded to our you tube page.
So it was not easy thinking of all the ideas. In fact, I have to admit, Sylvia ran out of patience and after writing just a few, but we persevered and I helped her. We enjoyed the task and in the end came up with some fab suggestions.
It really is an easy idea and we have all ready used the Jar about twice a day since making it.
You don’t even have to use coloured paper or felts and if your child is too young you could create the jar for them. Maybe even draw pictures of the activities instead of a list, if your child is too small to read. For a seven year old it was great writing practice.
A basic and simple activity which has started to make the holidays more fun all ready. Below is an infographic I created of 30 Activities to do in the Holidays. I hope you like it and your welcome to pin it to Pinterest.
