Updated: May 17, 2022

Are your kids always bored? Do they find a reason to watch television or play games on iPad? Do kids run around asking what to do since they are BORED?

You sure have tried to do some activities or play with kids. But it also get frustrating to try come up with ideas always, isn't it?

Take a jar and put a bunch of activities in it. Whenever BORED, children need to pick a paper/ice cream stick from the jar, follow instructions and complete the task.

Tasks include some art activity, games, treasure hunt, finding an object or completing chores.

(You can also keep some blank sheets for kids to decide their own activity.)

This can be super simple or a little more involve.


You can fill the jar with all sorts of activities to keep your little humans occupied! Some fun activities- make a treat/ lemonade, video call a friends or go swimming. while some productive ones- 15 jumping jacks, clean your cupboard or wash vegetables.

When children say they are BORED, ask them to pull from the jar!
