DIY Boredom Jar

Summer is so long… you’re trying everything to make sure your kids have the best summer ever! You’re sitting at home and the kids keep telling you they’re bored and you just don’t know what to do about it. Have you ever been there before? Well, what if we told you that we could fix those summer “boring” days we always find ourselves running into? All you need is the DIY Boredom Jar! It’s so easy to make and it’s a fun craft that will help you conquer summer.

Supplies needed:

  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Fine-point Permanent Marker
  • Fun-colored Tape
  • Mason Jar


This is when you need to brainstorm!

Think of ideas your kids would love to do even if it’s as simple as making slime in the kitchen. Use Categories to divide your activities so it gives yourself and the kids the capability to choose the kind of activity you want to do.

Some categories include:

  • Quiet Time Activities
  • Things We Can Do
  • Things We Can Do
  • Full of Energy
  • Family Time
  • Playing Outside
  • Fun with Food

Now, write each activity with permanent marker on each popsicle stick and tape its category on the end of the stick. You have now created your very own DIY Boredom Jar!

Get ready for a summer of laughter and fun!
