FREE "I'm Bored" Jar Printable For Kids

Today was the last full week of school for my kids. That means only 3 more days until summer starts. YAY right? The kids are so excited they could burst. But as a mom I know that that excitement will quickly wear away by week two, day 3, 9am. It happens the same time each year without fail. And when it does, the kids will let you know. They will come up to you dragging their feet, and sour faces and exclaim with a sigh, “MOM, I’m SO bored!” and “There’s nothing to do!”. Here we have 2 choices. We can tell them to go watch some TV (and no judgement here, sometimes we all go that route) or we can direct them to an activity. So that’s where the idea for the “I’m Bored” Jar comes in!

I'm Bord Jar Printable

With my FREE “I’m Bored” Jar Printable you cut up different activities and fold them. But them in a jar and every time a kid comes up to you and says their bored you direct them to the jar and have them pick out a fun activity to do! How fun is that right? I am in LOVE with this idea and my kids are too. I thought you would enjoy it so I wanted to share it with you guys, I hope you enjoy!
