My 7 year old is a big electronics kid and I found the bored jar idea to be a great tool to help him not be so eager to jump on the screen when he is bored. When he does announce his boredom (which is a few times a day), I respond with, "That is great that you are bored, now lets see what you can do!" I'll either encourage him to imagine something, play or pull a card out from our bored jar (image above). The bored jar idea cards include art activities, household chores, outdoor play, indoor play, and learning activities. There are 135+ ideas, 1 blank page to add your own ideas and 2 pages of bored jar idea labels. Once the kids are older, you can add different activities to suit their age. I hope you have fun and that these are helpful during down time! Enjoy! You can download this freebie below.
