Are your children feeling bored and cranky? Bring some excitement to your days with a “Fun Jar”! Simply write out a few fun ideas that can be done easily at home (you can make these as simple or involved as you would like). Tip: Make sure you have all supplies on hand before you initiate the fun jar.
When a moment of boredom strikes, send your children to choose a random idea from the jar! Simple ideas include: taking a family walk, building a fort with sheets, writing and sending notes to family members, playing games such as hide-and-seek or freeze tag, drawing or painting pictures, running through sprinklers, or choosing a good book to read to a sibling.
