Whoa does this bring me back to my childhood! All growing up I remember having this "terribly-great" thing called a bored jar. It was an old canning jar my mom had filled with little scraps of paper. On each scrap there was something to do, according to my brother and I some were terrible and some were great! They said thing like, 'clean your room', 'play with chalk', 'go for ice cream', 'vacuum your room', or 'ride bikes for an hour'. The catch to the bored jar is whenever someone says that infamous phrase "IM BORED" you were now forced to pick a scrap out of the bored jar, and whatever you picked you HAD to do. No whining, no ifs ands or buts about it!
I have a close girlfriend who is having her third child in a few months and I thought this would be a cute idea as a gift for her two older girls, now that she will need to keep them occupied doing things that allow her to take care of the baby more often. All you need is some sort of jar, preferably with a lid, scrap paper, glue, and anything else you want to decorate your jar. You can just keep it simple or go crazy with all that glue, mod podge, paper, ribbon and/or glitter! You decide but make it totally your own. I used some scrap fabric and mod podged it to the jar then added the little label out of sticker letters and computer paper. I got the jar for only 1.99, which was my only cost. So easy, cheap and fun! This is how it turned out:
